Ballet Classes for Boys & Girls

Ages 3 – 17 years

From first steps to prima ballerina join us for ballet classes in Banstead

At Banstead Academy of Performing Arts we follow the Ballet syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (I.S.T.D)

We believe that Ballet is the most essential form of dance, and that it teaches the technique that is the backbone for all dance genres.

It is the hardest of disciplines but will improve the sense of poise and a persons strength. Pupils will develop an understanding of how the body works through correct alignment and placing.

The syllabi ranges in grades suitable for children as young as three years old, up to vocational examinations to prepare students for entry into full time dance training.

We offer Babes Ballet classes all the way up to Intermediate, with specialised classes for Advanced and Pointe Work.

These classes are hard work and the discipline is necessary to establish the correct manor for the Ballet genre. However they are still lots of fun and the children are encouraged to be creative and nurtured in this environment to help develop their technique.

Pupils are encouraged and worked towards examinations accomplishing each grade which maintains the highest of standards, and enables the pupils to maintain their own goals and aspirations.

Ballet is a highly technical form of dance with it’s own vocabulary based on French terminology. It also teaches us musicality and valuable lessons in being elegant and graceful.

It has been globally influential and has defined the foundation technique used in many other dance genres.

TAP HERE TO CALL US!

Due to the Coronavirus regrettably our regular classes have momentarily paused until it is safe for them to resume.



In the meantime we hope that you will join us for our Summer Term online classes, Commencing Monday 20th April through to Friday 22nd May 2020.



What’s included:

Access to 15 LIVE classes a week!

Access each week to pre-recorded syllabus steps for each grade to complement live sessions.

Access to all of the classes at any time day and night, by being part of this exclusive group!

Access to try other dance styles in the comfort of your own home, pick up the popular MT & Hip hop classes!



This Summer term online being supported by yourselves allows all of the above to happen and keeps us also on track to build up to our long-awaited show!

At the end of the half term we will hopefully have a better idea of when we will be able to get back to the halls and get started with the show preparations in our normal face to face sessions and this is something that I think we will all look forward to doing and seeing.

We appreciate that many others are feeling the pressure of the madness the world is facing, so If there are any questions, queries etc then please, please do feel that you can contact me to discuss this privately via email Nadine@ba-pa.co.uk

Continue to smile, be thankful that you have each other and forever be the amazing and wonderful supportive BAPA family you are…

Thank you with all my heart

Miss Nadine and the BAPA team
