Reception Ballet (Pre-Primary)

This class is for children who have started School/Reception/Kindergarten. Our week day classes are scheduled so that children can come straight from school and we also run Saturday classes which are very popular. Our Reception class is a big ‘step up’ from our pre-school programme, and we are aware that our week day pupils are adapting to a full day at school so we keep the atmosphere FUN by applying a range of ballet themes, games and concepts, whilst learning the foundations of ballet technique, strengthening exercises, and gentle ballet stretching. Parents are invited to watch a class presentation at the end of each term.
