Primary ballet is our third-year level ballet class. Students are taught the fundamental steps of the classical ballet style through a combination of British Ballet Organisation (BBO) and Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabi. Exercises and combinations have a focus on technique, style and performance.

Students in Pre Primary have the opportunity to enter a Internal Assessment, NZAMD Medal Test and/or to perform in our annual End of Year Recital.

Primary ballet progresses on to Grade 1 ballet.
