Ballet Levels

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.

Our ballet classes at Inspire start at Pre Level Ballet. 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.

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.

Jazz Fusion

Jazz Fusion is super fun and upbeat, Jazz based class!

We suggest Jazz Fusion as a great place to start for students that just love dancing to music on the radio! We use modern, popular, age-appropriate music for these classes and they are so much fun.

The technique of jazz has its roots in ballet and uses many of the same body placement elements found in ballet, including the proper technique when displaying body placement, extension and control. Yet it incorporates a low centre of gravity and high level of energy.

Students have opportunities to develop their own choreographic skills within the class and will learn set dances which are performed during our end of year showcase.

Dancers will begin each jazz class by stretching. Jazz dance classes will also include centre and across the floor exercises, developing skill sets.

We use the IDT Syllabus as a basis for our Dance Fusion classes.
