Ballet Classes

Classical ballet training to suit all ages and abilities

We’ll help bring out your confidence and true potential

The BBO Classical Ballet Syllabus was devised by Anne Heaton and John Field commencing at Primary level up to the Advanced level of expertise. The syllabus is designed to nurture and encourage young dancers to appreciate the enjoyment of movement, develop in flexibility and strength, in harmony with the whole body.

The syllabus levels gradually increase in technical ability, grace and charm, the bases of all good dancing.

Our syllabus focuses on providing learners with a secure grounding in classical ballet technique, as well as developing musicality and artistry.

We offer ballet lessons for children aged 3 years old and over.
