Our youngest students have their own annual Tiny Tots Festival on Saturday November 11th 9.30am – 10.30am. A one-hour show designed to give our youngest performers a love of the stage without too much investment from their families.
Junior Studio Program
The Junior Studio accepts students from Grade One to Grade Three (School Grade 3). Classes are grouped together to make it easier for parents. You also have the choice with Dance lessons of weekday or Saturday mornings. Make-up classes are available within the same term if you let Reception know.
Intermediate Studio Program
The Studio’s Intermediate School commences with students from School Grade 4 through to High School. Students studying Ballet at this stage are now required to attend two lessons per week to increase their muscle memory in order to have them strong enough for Pointe Work at age 12-13. Pointe is added for Ballet students who have reached the IADMS benchmarks in Gold Medal Ballet.
Intermediate students have a wider range of classes to choose from including Contemporary Dance, Drama, Tap Lessons, Drama Classes, Acrobatics, Clowning, Musical Theatre, Singing classes, Piano lessons as well as Aerial Lyra Lessons.
Is your teenager NEW TO BALLET? Don’t panic the professional teachers at The Studio will integrate them into ballet class, getting them proficient in the vocabulary and movement that is required. Teenagers that are new to ballet join The Studio at the Silver Star level, this ensures they learn the basic skills required.
Students studying Classical Ballet lessons develop self-discipline, co-ordination, poise, confidence and a greater awareness of body control, than any other form of Performing Art. The Studio offers A.T.O.D. Classical Ballet. This syllabus may lead students to a lifelong journey in Dance; whether it be as a classical, contemporary or commercial dancer, a Primary or High school teacher or as a complement to another field such as physiotherapy, psychology, occupational therapy or an administrator of a dance company or dance school.
Senior Studio Program
The Studio’s Senior Studio is based on levels only. New students will need to be assessed by our Senior teachers before they can join these classes. Students from Elementary Ballet or Jazz or Level 10 Hip Hop and above through to Advanced are classed as Senior students. These levels are the base requirement to apply for ATOD teachers examinations. Senior students are able to consider involvement in The Studio Senior Mentoring program to assist with scholarship applications, auditions after high school and focusing on individual outcomes.
