Sammy's Dance offer classes in Classical Ballet for all ages.
Classical Ballet is the epitome of the Dance World, An art form in itself. It is the most recognised dance form around the globe and competition is big. Sammy's Dance have great ambitions and a huge passion for teaching Ballet. The school has an exceptional pass rate among ballet examinations, and for the past three consecutive years, SSD students have qualified and participated at the Junior Imperial Classical Ballet Awards in Milton Keynes.
Students can begin classes at this level from the age of 3 years. Classes run for half hour, as we understand that younger children struggle to concentrate for long periods of time. Our tinies class teaches the very basics of ballet including knee bends, 1st position and pointing toes. The class includes fun exercises, role play, props and creative dance to allow children to express themselves and have fun.
Once ready, students can progress into the Primary level Ballet class or Primary level Modern class. Primary Ballet focuses on basic technique with a more structured approach to exercises. We follow the ISTD Imperial Ballet syllabus in preparation for the first level exam (optional).
Our pre senior classes cover the ISTD lower graded syllabus' (Grades 1-3). Students begin to learn more about the role of the dancer, the vocabulary of steps and start to make strong progressions in Technique, Artistry & Performance skills.
Please see our timetable for details of class times.
