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 follows both the Graded Syllabus and for the more serious student, the Vocational Graded Syllabus of the RAD.

 

 

Fundamentals and Fun Program

This is a low intensity program designed for the student who loves to dance without the demand or commitment of the competitive program.  Children may be prepared for exams at the teacher’s discretion and will participate in our annual recital, Danskapades.

Students will be placed in classes based on dance experience and age.

*Tuition is per month, based on 34 classes in the dance year.  Classes run from September – June.

All classes – 45 minutes once a week
