Modern Ballet

About

Based on universal ballet technique, Modern Ballet consists of flowing and controlled movements generally danced to music with a slow tempo. It is different to Classical Ballet in that it does not involve any pointe work and is a much more free and contemporary style. It is best suited to those who already have a dance background (an especially good extension for those who have a jazz background).

Senior Classes: 12 year and over

Class Attire

Please use the private exam attire displayed above as a guide as to what to wear to class, but it is fine to wear different coloured clothing to class (not just black). All footwear is the same as for private exam attire.

You may choose to wear leggings and a tight fitted top to class instead of private exam attire.
