Junior, Inter, Stars, Teen, Seniors & Open
Classical Ballet Training provides the best foundation for technical training in all forms of dance. We encourage all students to take Ballet class to use as their base for all other classes, especially Jazz and Contemporary. UCD Ballet Students in terms 1 & 2 are dedicated to learning and working on their technique. We teach the very current and leading Australian Teachers of Dancing Classical Ballet Syllabus. Some of our Ballet Teachers are also trained in RAD (Royal Academy of Dancing).
In terms 3 & 4 our focus then moves towards refining our skills and preparing our concert routines. Routines include beautiful Classical Ballet and Lyrical Routines. Ballet is the foundation for developing good dance technique and prepares the dancers to develop beautiful strong bodies through the emphasis on good posture and the development of strength and flexibility.
Once students reach Silver Medal and above level (Teen, Senior & Open) students are then required to attend twice a week. Ballet is a Mainstream Class and students perform 2 routines at the end of year concerts.
In 2021 we look forward to introducing our Ballet Extension Program.
