Ballet Classes in Wokingham

Ballet is the foundation of all dance genres, and provides pupils with a sense of discipline and technique. We offer a strong foundation in ballet that enhances and improves training, benefitting other genres of dance.

If you’re looking for baby ballet classes, many of our younger pupils begin with pre-primary ballet, where very basic ballet steps are learnt through imagery and mime. These classes are always very popular and are packed with fun-filled ideas for the children to enjoy. As our pupils develop through the grades, we teach a strong foundation in technique and foster a love of classical ballet, which brings out the performance aspect of the work. We offer Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Exams termly, starting from Primary through to Advanced 2 Ballet. Many of our pupils complete the RAD Majors before continuing their professional careers. Character work commences from Grade 1.

We offer pointe-work training as part of the RAD syllabus and great care and attention is given to the pupils in this area. Poorly-trained ballet dancers are more prone to injury, so developing the correct technique is our priority.

Alongside RAD ballet classes, we also offer Junior, Intermediate and Senior Ballet Coaching. In these classes our aim is to increase flexibility, strength, and technique to aid classical development. Pupils attending these classes progress quickly.  These classes are open to anyone attending the dance school.
