A minimum twice weekly attendance from Grade 4 is required for eligibility to do pointework.
Students from the school regularly progress to full time training at vocational institutions and into careers as dancers and teachers.
Whether a child attends once weekly for fun or is considering dance as a career, ballet develops poise, self discipline, musicality, rhythm and a highly increased physical and sensory awareness.
