Ballet is the foundation of all dance styles. It is a disciplined genre of dance focusing on moving lyrically and gracefully to music. A wonderful way to feel like a princess for our younger students and a technically demanding style for advanced students. We offer Pre-pointe programs for students 11+ who wish to further their ballet training en pointe. Students are carefully guided through this transition by the Radiance ballet teachers. All Ballet students from Prep through to Seniors sit exams annually to continue development and further their knowledge of the C.S.T.D syllabus.
Jazz is an energetic, fun genre which uses popular music, while learning technique and building strength and co-ordination. Jazz is upbeat and high energy!
