Enjoy the exhilaration that comes from dancing through space with ease and confidence! These junior ballet classes aim to build each child’s love of dance by teaching technical dance skills in a fun environment.
Taking a creative approach to the traditional form of ballet, Rose’s classes nurture self-esteem as well as physical capability, communication, imagination and team work.
Some classes during the term may be covered by a guest/co-tutor.
