Our Classes

Pre School Ballet (3yrs - 4.5yrs)

A magical class that aims to capture and nurture young children’s instinctive joy of movement and freedom of expression.

The Pre School classes are designed to enable children to participate in dance activities that are developmentally appropriate, helping to facilitate the learning of dance skills at a later age.

Ballet Classes (5yrs +)

The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments which is designed to motivate and encourage students of all ages and levels of ability.

Students move up through Pre-Primary and Primary levels and then into eight Graded levels or six Vocational Graded levels.

Students may move from the Graded pathway to the Vocational Graded pathway at an appropriate time; or they may study both pathways simultaneously.

The Siegeris School of Dance will have an examination programme to suit all, whether students are new to ballet or already have dance experience.

 Tap/Modern Classes (4yrs +)

This combination class is for the beginners to experience and explore the common links of rhythm and improvisation shared by both genres. Once they have a good grasp of the basics, pupils are encouraged to build upon them and progress through the grades.

Beginning Tap can be quite a slow process, since it's necessary to work through the basics in a systematic manner. Learning it in combination with Modern helps to improve the posture and also provides a useful backing in performance skills.

Parents are invited to watch classes at the end of the Autumn and Summer terms.

*Please note:

A mandatory 4 terms must be completed before students will be considered for a RAD Ballet exam or an ISTD Tap/Modern exam.

Children develop at different rates and the teacher will advise parents when a pupil is ready to move up to the next level - the ages given are merely a guideline.

Parents are invited to watch classes at the end of the Autumn and Summer terms.
