Pre Steps Ballet

Pre steps ballet is a Preliminary class before grade examinations which is designed to challenge your 4 to 5 year old. In this class your child is gently introduced to the art of classical ballet with imagination and basic movements, marching, skipping, and pointing their toes along with posture and awareness which encourages co-ordination creativity and rhythm. This specially devised program is to encourage all  the above plus self-esteem and confidence.

For young children, age 2 to 3 years,  we offer Nursery Ballet and from 4 to 5 years Pre Steps Ballet as a  gentle introduction, progressing at the age of 6 to Pre Primary ballet. From Beginner to Advanced Level the Adagio School of Dance offers a wide range of classes for Any new Student. All teachers are highly qualified who bring years of experience to each class in order to safely guide students through the art of Classical Ballet.
