This is an exciting age group to teach. Children in this level are often leaving mummy for the first time in a formal situation. They get excited quickly and have fantastic imaginations. Whilst our classes at this level are still fun we need structure and a few rules to ensure that our ballerinas have a safe and enjoyable experience.
This is also an age that children’s personalities are starting to come to the fore and they are seeking new experiences and challenges. We therefore offer a Tap class for 15 minutes, which is generally either side of a class, for those who are wanting to broaden their repertoire and experience another genre of dance.
Soloist children also have the opportunity to undertake a ballet exam with Australian Teachers of Dancing.
