CLASSICAL BALLET

Being a ballerina is many young children’s dream. Whether or not they become professional dancers, they will learn many life skills associated with the art of dance. Ballet helps to improve ones sense of coordination and balance, encourages self discipline and increases strength, flexibility and agility. As our founder Susanne Hanger always said, “As long as my dancers walk down the aisle someday with beautiful posture and poise I have done my job”.  

Ballet is a great base from which to learn other styles of dance.

 

PRE GRADES

Rosette 2

The next step up from Rosette 1. More focus is given on basic technique and learning to dance independently.  The class teacher will be in the exam room, and every child receives a special rosette at completion. Must be turning 6 or older in the exam's year.

Rosette 3

The next step from Rosette 2. More focus is given on basic technique and learning to dance independently.  The class teacher will not be in the exam room, their first exam without their teacher. Every child receives a special rosette at completion and a grading from the examiner. Must be turning 7 or older in the exam's year.

 

LEVELS 1 & UP

Ballet Examinations are available from Grade One through to Advanced plus Solo Performance Diploma. Ballet is an important base for most dance disciplines, and the NZAMD Ballet syllabus is designed to allow students to progress without pressure, each grade being of a length that makes it attractive for the once a week student, as well as being progressively challenging for the more committed student.

BALLET FOUNDATION

An amazing open non examination class designed to solidify your ballet technique. Explaining new ways to think of executing a move, or how to get your posture strong and secure. Focusing on a particular muscle group or position to aid your dance progression. Open to level 4 & up students. 

UNIFORM

 

An enforced dress code helps in many ways. By wearing a uniform the dancer understands that they are going to a structured class which in turn

helps to develop the right mindset. A uniform gives the teacher the ability to see the lines and shapes the dancer is creating and to fix any incorrect technique.  Being dressed all the same also creates an identity and sense of belonging to the studio.

Please check disciplines for correct attire.

Uniforms and I-Dance merchandise are available to order at the studio.
