Ballet is a classical dance form characterized by grace, technique and precision of movement. It is distinguished by stretching and strengthening of the leg and torso muscles, pointing the feet, turned out positions, and correct alignment. The classes offered are the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) method – an international society that structures the syllabus from Pre-school to Advanced 2 level allowing students to choose a Graded examination course or Vocational examinations if career minded.”
