Central School Of Ballet - Junior School

Class Content

The Central School of Ballet Junior Programme strives to provide exceptional standards of ballet tuition whilst emphasising an open and inclusive community ethos. Our in-house syllabus, specifically tailored across eleven levels for pupils aged 3-16, provides a solid foundation on which aspiring ballet dancers can build and is consistent with the approach of our Prep and Pre-Senior Programme and Senior School.

Our youngest levels focus on the development of rhythm, co-ordination, musicality and imagination. By Level 2 a more formal approach is adopted, building a basic knowledge of ballet vocabulary and posture. As pupils progress through the levels these core principles are expanded and refined to serve increasingly demanding exercises. By Level 6 pupils have a broad knowledge of ballet vocabulary and are beginning to develop a sense of musicality and expression. Our higher Levels (7-9) serve as an excellent training ground for pupils who may wish to pursue dance as a career as well as those who are keen to develop their hobby to a high standard. Levels 8 and 9 are two year programmes; Level 8 is for pupils in School Years 8 and 9 and Level 9 is for pupils in School Years 10 and 11.

We welcome pupils of all abilities with entry subject to availability.

Junior School classes take place on Monday to Friday evenings from 4pm onwards.
