Ballet

An excellent foundation for any student. This dance style follows the technique of the Royal Academy of Dance and is the basis for all dance forms.  Martin School of Dance follows both the Graded Syllabus and for the more serious student, the Vocational Graded Syllabus of the RAD.

 

 

Part Time Competitive

This program is for the student who is looking for a program to develop their training without the demand or commitment of the full time student.  Children will be prepared for exams at the teacher’s discretion (and if the child is interested) and  local competition(s) in the disciplines they are taking.  Students can take as many hours as they are interested in however ballet is not a requirement.  Students will be placed in classes based on dance experience and age.

There will be three levels offered Junior, Intermediate and Senior.  Classes will be split into smaller groups as numbers warrant.
