The PSB Ballet Curriculum was forged through decades of teaching ballet to thousands of students. Syllabus classes incorporate the principles of Cecchetti Ballet (grace, balance and line), infused with exercises taken from every ballet discipline. The end result is a ballet program that is unique and stimulating. Students learn co-ordination, poise, confidence, rhythmical sense and musicality – within a program that is alive and fun.
Tiny Tots Ballet is a fun dance class for our littlest dancers (ages 2-4).
We introduce basic dance movements and musicality. Our littlies love to dance to music they recognise and they don’t even know they’re learning new skills! We use fun props that help us all create a make-believe world of dance and music. Children can wear comfortable clothing (most like to come as fairies or pirates or in tutus or leotards), bare feet and hair tied back. Parents are welcome to stay for the first few weeks until children are comfortable being left on their own.
Littlies Ballet classes include Kindy Ballet, Ballet Foundation, Pre Primary Ballet, Primary Ballet and Grade 1 Ballet.
Students learn the foundational skills and development of ballet and contemporary dance in a fun and nurturing environment. They develop confidence and a sense of independence as they learn and expand their dance capabilities. For more information on each level in our Littlies Program, click here.
Our Contemporary Dance curriculum training works in conjunction with the ISTD Modern Theatre syllabus. We recommend students do both types of classes. Modern Theatre dance stems from the original contemporary dancers such as Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham & Lester Horton. The strength of the Modern syllabus comes from the versatility that it gives students. Along with a solid foundation in contemporary technique, students also learn other styles such as lyrical, blues, hip hop and Spanish.
