Our Primary class is for 5-7 year olds and is designed to teach your child the basic ballet techniques and steps, ready for their journey into graded ballet. This class still incorporates ideas of fun and play while beginning to learn formal exercises.
In this class, your child can complete their first ballet examination under IDT. Dependent on their strengths they will have the option of completing either an Examination with set exercises or a Medal dance. The Medal dance is a performance piece with a costume and each child will enter the exam individually. The Exam focuses on technique and children will enter in groups. These exams are optional as they are not necessary to progress to the next grade but they are great for practise and confidence. We will only enter a child for an exam when they are ready so they do not feel under any pressure to perform.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Carmel is brilliant with the kids and has really engaging, fun classes. My daughter has grown in confidence so much since starting ballet.
Great ballet class; my little girl has a fantastic time every week & loves showing us her new moves.
My daughter loves her ballet classes and I love the adult classes too. Carmel manages to make the classes fun for all ages.
My little girl has done classes with Miss Carmel from the very first lesson when the classes started up and she LOVES it. It's a great way to introduce her to dance. Each lesson is different and really creative. Big fan of the classes.
