Ballet is the foundation of all dance styles. It is a disciplined genre of dance focusing on moving lyrically and gracefully to music. Our classes are based on the Vaganova method of training. It is wonderful to watch our students develop coordination, poise and strong posture. It requires discipline, determination and focus to master the ballet steps and represents valuable life skills!
What is Vaganova and Australian Conservatoire of Ballet?
The outdated ballet traditions of the early 1900’s led the ballerina Agrippina J. Vaganova to create her own system of classical dance. By combining elements of the French, Italian (Cecchetti) and Russian Ballet Schools, and developing them further, she reached a highly detailed theory of dance movement.
Today, Vaganova is the chosen method by most professional companies around the world.
Australian Ballerina, Christine Walsh AM, has developed the ACB (Australian Conservatoire of Ballet) training and assessment program, adapting the original 8-year full-time Vaganova method, to become a 12-year program meeting the needs of classical ballet students unable to take full-time dance training from an early age. The ACB emphasizes correct placement, dynamics and an outstanding performance quality. The program also develops a positive attitude towards dance training.
All ballet students from Primary through to Seniors sit exams annually to continue development and further their knowledge. Students in Junior, Intermediate A & B, and Senior are required to enrol in 2 ballet lessons per week for Ballet syllabus work and progress to pointe.
