The structure and discipline of ballet not only develops poise, flexibility and strength but also serves as a critical foundation for all other forms of dance. We offer classes through the Royal Academy of Dancing Syllabus as well as non-syllabus classes in ballet technique and repertoire, pointe, beginner teen ballet and Progressive Ballet Technique.

Royal Academy of Dancing (R.A.D.)

We offer R.A.D ballet classes for ages 5 to 18, from Pre-Primary through Grade 5 and from Intermediate Foundation to Advanced One. Examinations throughout the R.A.D. Institute are upon recommendation by the instructor and are held annually with an examiner appointed by the Royal Academy of Dancing. For levels Intermediate Foundation and up, every student will have the opportunity to participate in an examination whether it be an R.A.D. Examination or an NSAD In-House Examination. In-House examinations are held at the discretion of NSAD and require a minimum number of dancers to participate. For a more detailed description of the RAD ballet exam class program click here.

Performance Ballet

Our Ballet Performance Group will work on a dance routine throughout the year and compete at three dance competitions during the Spring Season. These groups also have multiple performance opportunities such as two annual recitals and community events.


This graceful form of dance is a central part of a ballet dancer’s classical training and repertoire where special shoes are worn to support the dancers foot. Students begin their Pointe training between the ages of 11-13 years old by the recommendation of their instructor.

Open Ballet

These non-syllabus classes offer open ballet work to dancers who require additional training with the examination program. Classes consist of Barre Work, Centre Practice and steps that travel across the floor.
