Professional Ballet Lessons and Classes in Carlisle, Cumbria


Young Children's Ballet Classes

In our weekly ballet classes for Reception age upwards we introduce basic ballet technique and steps whilst nurturing a sense of enjoyment and musical awareness. Although the classes are structured we also use stories or themes each week to develop children's imaginations and creativity through movement.

Children can take Pre-Primary, Primary and Standard 1 Cecchetti classical ballet examinations at our studio through the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD).

Ballet Classes - Grades 1 to 6

Weekly ballet technique classes following the ISTD Cecchetti classical ballet class examinations (Standards 1 to 6) and Grade examinations (Grades 1 to 6).

There is a strong focus on developing correct ballet technique whilst encouraging musicality, enjoyment of dance and performance, also incorporating dance improvisation and choreography.

Ballet at Vocational level

After Standard 6, students move on to ISTD Cecchetti ballet Senior Certificate 1 & 2 with the option of pointe work - specifically designed for pupils dancing for enjoyment rather than a career in dance or performing arts.

Grade 6 leads into the Cecchetti classical ballet vocational/professional examinations which include pointe work. Students gain UCAS points from Grade 6 upwards which may assist college/university applications.
