I think most dancers would agree that the art of ballet chooses the dancer, not the other way around.

Dear Parents and Students

A warm welcome to each parent and student, especially to all the new comers at the studio.  The goal of the studio is to teach students a love of dance with a strong classical technique that will give them a lifetime of benefits.  The classes stimulate creativity, artistic awareness, self-discipline, responsibility and self-esteem.
Psalm 149:3 “Let them praise His Name with Dancing” is the foundation on which we build the studio.
GENERAL INFORMATION
A.  BALLET EXAMS
International Cecchetti Ballet Exams take place during September (see point 4)
All extra classes that will be presented in order to prepare for the exams during the holidays or weekends will be free.  Individual private classes will cost R300-00 per hour.
 
B.  PILATES 
The lessons are for all ballet students from Grade 1 upwards.  It is NOT included in the fee but  is vital if a student wants to do well and continue with a ballet career into higher grades.
