Ballet

Classical ballet – For all ages and Skill level

Classical ballet training provides the foundation for all forms of dance and is highly recommended, especially in the early years, if you wish to achieve your full potential as a dancer in any code of dance.

Classical Ballet has always been a strength of The Dance Centre , with past students following careers in The Australian Ballet, Dance North, Expressions Dance Company, Queensland Ballet, West Australian Ballet Company, Royal New Zealand Ballet, Disney Tokyo, Disney Florida, Princess Cruise Lines & other dance groups around the world.

The ballet students at The Dance Centre are aiming for co-ordination, improved posture, grace, flow of line, brilliance in jumps and turns, discipline and musicality.

The Cecchetti Method of Classical Ballet and Royal Academy of Dance syllabi are taught by a highly qualified, professional team lead by Janice Heale F.I.S.T.D who has a proud 30 years experience in developing dancers of the highest standards.
