Our Ballet Classes follow the syllabus of the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD). Our little ones start as early as 2.5yrs old right up to 19yrs old.
We start our little ballerinas off by developing a love of dance through lots of mime, imagery, and especially composed music, provided by the RAD pre-school syllabus.
The RAD exams are offered to students from 5yrs upwards starting with Pre-Primary Ballet through to the professional Vocational Exams of Intermediate and Advanced. These examinations are held annually and typically happen during the Spring Break.
For the serious and talented dancers, Turning Pointe runs a program of Vocational Classes, gearing students towards their professional examinations. Turning Pointe staff are experienced in successfully coaching students through vigorous international auditions, assisting with applications to Vocational Full Time schools and colleges in the UK, Australia, and the US.
Ballet Fusion is a fun rhythmical class combining all aspects of dance for 4 – 6year olds. Students will be taught in a relaxed environment developing, rhythm, musicality, and good posture whilst learning the basics of Ballet, Hip Hop, and Tap Dance. It is an ideal class for those children not sure which style is going to be their forte and helps them to explore all three in one class.
The classes also work towards learning a dance for the Turning Pointe end-of-year Pre-School Show. Participation in the show is optional.
Dance Fusion is for 6 – 9year olds. It is an ideal class for those who have completed Ballet Fusion or for the new student who is not sure which style of dance they will prefer. The classes will develop the students' knowledge and ability in Ballet, Hip Hop, and Tap Dance, teaching them the different styles and preparing them for an annual stage show in the summer term.
Those graduating from Dance Fusion tend to choose to focus on one or two genres of dance, developing the individual styles to a higher level, enabling them to become more experienced dancers.
