Ballet Classes

Ballet

An extremely popular choice of style at our studio! Classical Ballet is a beautiful & historic art-form & provides a strong technical foundation, developing discipline, grace & poise. We incorporate the Australian Teachers of Dancing syllabus into our classes and examinations are available to our students. Exams preparation begins at Test 1 level.

Next Steps – 5 years

Our ballet classes at Inspire start from the Next Steps program by Kinderballet™. These classes are beautifully themed and enable students to learn about some of the Great traditional ballets. Students develop classical ballet technique, learn a variety of ballet steps and the ways in which to execute them. This Kinderballet™ Accredited Program is the ideal foundation for our Test ballet levels. Students are typically around 5yrs old and in Prep level at school.

Test 1, 2, 3 – 6yrs and up

Our Test classes (Test 1, 2, 3) follow the ATOD method of training. These classes largely focus on classical ballet technique and building on the foundations laid by the previous levels to increase the repertoire of steps. There is an element of creative movement to allow for freedom of expression and children’s own ability to think creatively. Students learn set dances which are performed during our end of year showcase. Test classes are not themed but follow the structure of a traditional ballet class with barre work and centre practice.

As a guide, a Test 1 student would be 6 years old and in Year 1 at school. Test 2 would be 7 years old and in Year 2. This is assuming the student has a strong foundation for ballet before they begin. We like to see students enter the class that best suits their ability level, rather than their age or grade in school.
