Adult Ballet Classes

Our Adult Ballet classes are tailored to the specific needs of Adults and we offer a variety of classes at many of levels incorporating Silver Swans in some classes:

  • Basic Beginners – this is for the Adult that has had no ballet or dance training and gets you ready to move into Beginners level.
  • Beginners – if you have danced  as a child then this would be the class to start at.
  • Beginners plus – if you have danced as a teenager then this is the class for you.
  • Discovering Repertoire – this is a new programme and is a step up from beginners plus which enables the student to learn and dance well known variations. Exams are offered but are not compulsory.
  • Grade 8 – this is an alternate to Discovering Repertoire. Exams are offered but are not compulsory.
  • Open class – this is a step up from Discovering Rep 2 and 3.
  • Open Plus class – this is a step up from the open class and is most suited to the more advanced dancer.
  • Pre-Pointe Class – This will build your strength to enable a safe transition to pointe.
  • Pointe Class – you are required to be at beginners plus level to under take this class,  and have completed the pre-pointe class or already be on pointe.
  • Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) – to supplement ballet training, building core strength.


UNIFORM – Ballet shoes are required.  There is no uniform as such – wear whatever you feel most comfortable in.  A black camisole leotard and skirt will be required for exams however this can be discussed with your teacher closer to the time.
