BALLET :: Ages 3+

Ballet serves as a backbone for many other styles of dance, as many other dance genres are based on ballet.

Ballet is based on techniques that have been developed over centuries. Ballet uses music and dance to tell stories. Ballet dancers have the ability to transport an audience to another world. Here at CSB we study R.A.D. ballet. The Royal Academy of Dance is one of the world’s most influential dance education and training organisations.

We promote knowledge, understanding and practice of dance internationally. We seek to accomplish this through promoting dance, educating and training students and providing examinations to set standards and reward achievement. Please note that it is not mandatory for the child to take an exam.
