About our Dance Lessons for Children

Bristol Ballet School offers lessons in The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Classical Ballet syllabus.

The Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) is one of the world’s most influential dance education and training organisations and is recognised internationally for the highest standards of learning and teaching.

We also offer lessons in 

Contemporary Dance and Modern Dance

Our Ballet lessons are designed for students who have never studied ballet before to dancers who have been studying ballet consistently for many years. 

Our ballet classes for children age 2+ include Barre, Centre, Stretching, Adagio, Allegro and Pointe Work. We focus on the physical and intellectual understanding of how and why each movement is executed. With our exclusive teaching methods, your child will progress further, quickly and safely. Whether you are experimenting to see where your child's interests lie are or have an aspiring dancer, our ballet classes will provide a nurturing environment for you.

 

Most of our Ballet classes for children are offered twice a week. It truly expedites the muscle memory allowing dancers to progress much more quickly when they attend class multiple times per week. If you can only attend once a week, we would still love to have you. Just expect that there will be a difference in technical ability from some of the other students by the end of the session.

Lesson duration are at least 45 minutes long so that the syllabus can be covered thoroughly and are designed to ensure each individual students talent can develop to its full potential.

Our aim is to make our lessons fun whilst establishing a strong foundation of the classical Ballet and dance technique. 

Although we encourage students to be entered into The Royal Academy of Dance Examinations, this is not compulsory.

All lessons at Bristol Ballet School are taught by qualified and experienced Royal Academy of Dance Ballet Teachers. They are also qualified in First Aid and CRB checked.

We are constantly updating our dance timetable so check back often to make sure you don't miss out on a new dance opportunity.

All new students will need to register with us in advance before attending any lessons
