Ballet Grades 4 Syllabi & Upwards
Age: 10 years +
These graded syllabi ballet classes continue from the previous grades (1, 2 & 3), with the enhanced learning of a broad practical dance education further developing the technical, musical and performance skills of the student.
The classes continue to incorporate Classical Ballet, Free Movement and Character at progressively more advanced levels.
The aims of the dance classes remain the same of the previous grades with the expected learning outcome to be of a more mature and technical nature.
Students learn in preparation for examinations, however this is not compulsory and other arrangements can be made.
Please note: The above ages are used as a guideline only.
