Dancers will attend approximately twice a month on Sundays

Entry is by audition and the summer term will involve an assessment providing vital feedback and progress reports.

 

 

BBA Junior – Level 1A & 1B

The basic principles of anatomy will be threaded throughout their Ballet class work and embedded during the 30 minutes of Pilates based floor exercises they will cover after their class. They will be taught all technical, musical and artistic aspects in an environment that will build both confidence and skill whilst exercising their enquiring minds. The 2/2.25 hour class is followed by contemporary (sometimes repertoire) which is an optional extra but extremely vital skill in ballet today.

Classes taught by Joel Morris ex-soloist, PDTC and Sarah Mcllroy ex ENB Principle QTLS, ENBS and Tring. 

(Minimum age 8yrs - auditionees can be 7 if close to 8 yrs for Sept entry)

 

BBA Mid - Level 2A & 2B

2.5 hours of intensive Ballet training incorporating some floor barre and Pilates based body conditioning. A fantastic pianist will be playing to help inspire a true sense of musicality as part of their technique and artistic work. The anatomy work continues with a deeper understanding of the use of their muscles, the correct terminology, along with more technical aspects and pre pointe strengthening/virtuosity work for the boys. Contemporary work will be incorporated as an optional extra hour of class.

Classes taught by Lisa Millard and Zoe Eptein (RBS Dip) 

 

BBA Mid - Level 3A & 3B

Intensive training in a nurturing environment that allows students to realize how much more they can achieve. There will be class, pointe work/strengthening for boys and ocassionally repertoire. These dancers will now have an in depth knowledge of their own anatomy and be able to apply their corrections with intelligence and maturity. Contemporary will be offered and the training will be in line with both vocational and international standards. Pilates based body conditioning will still be incorporated but we will expect students to write these down and start doing them at home to maximize their rate of improvement.

Classes taught by Sarah Mcllroy and Joel Morris. 

BBA Mid Level 4 and Seniors 

3 hours of intensive Ballet training. This time will include Ballet Class, Pointe work/virtuosity and ocassioanlly Repertoire. Pilates based body conditioning exercises will be explained so that students can continue these at home between classes so please bring a notebook to record these. More self awareness and technical ability will be expected along with an innate sense of musicality and artistry.

The class will be divided according to the work that is being focused on at the time with a 15 minute break. 

Emma Northmore will teach the seniors and Dima Grudzyev (Ex Principal ENB) the Mid 4 group with occasional change between the two groups.

There will be Contemporary on each date and in the course of the year we hope to offer a couple of Master classes with guest teachers offering insight into other systems of training. These will come up as an optional extra or as part of the curriculum.

  • Levels and progression will be decided in the Spring term assessment - please be aware that age will not dictate which level a child is in. This will be judged on technical ability and strength and their personal aptitude to the training given.
