Russian Ballet Beginner/Novice (Non-Syllabus class)
For beginners or students who used to study Ballet and require refresher training. The classes are designed to cover the essential classical Ballet techniques, conditioning the body to create ideal alignment and placement, improving strength and flexibility, and developing musicality, and Ballet Terminology. There are no examinations for Russian Ballet but students perform in the annual recital.
Russian Ballet Intermediate / Advanced (Non-Syllabus class)
For students with at least 4 years of Ballet training, these classes are more intensive, advanced and focus all the essentials taught in beginner/novice, but will help to develop a greater sense of artistry and understanding of the Russian Ballet method and practice. Again, there are no examinations for Russian Ballet but students perform in the annual recital.
