Children’s Ballet Dancing
We have a brilliant team of teachers who love to share their passion and enthusiasm for dance by using bundles of creativity and their wonderful imaginations on all of our junior classes. Children start on our Twinkle Tots Baby Ballet classes at the age of 2 and half years where we nurture them in a lovely and gentle environment so that they enjoy growing with both confidence and elegance each week. As the children grow older they work their way through the different grades developing the basic fundamentals of ballet such as poise, grace, coordination and rhythm.
Our Junior Ballet classes follow the IDTA syllabus; many juniors are encouraged to take part in external examinations that push them to perfect their technique and it also gives them a brilliant goal to work towards with a fantastic sense of achievement afterward. We put on regular school shows for all the children of all abilities to join in, we have recently performed our take on Alice in Wonderland at the Barrington Theatre with great success.
No prior dance experience is needed to join any of our classes and it is never too late to start! At Anglo Dance, we pride ourselves on each child reaching their full potential and most importantly enjoying every minute in a happy and inspiring environment.
