Dance Class - Ballet

What is Ballet?

 

CYDT teaches the RAD Syllabus which is based on the The Royal Academy of Dance's internationally recognised portfolio of exams and assessments that are designed to encourage, motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities, outlining a progressive structure for learning and achievement in dance.

 

Ballet truly is an art form, the universial principles for which are balance and mobility. It is upon these principles that all ballet technique is taught.

 

More than a simple dance form, ballet teaches etiquette, poise, form and so much more.
