Full Time College
Juniors – Ages 9 to 12 years old
Our Junior Classes are longer in length and challenge and push students more than the Mini classes. Students who are at the older end of the Junior Age Group who have good Ballet technique and who have been dancing with us an appropriate amount of years might able to join our Pointe classes (at the teacher’s discretion and judgement). Safety and well being of the dancer will always come first when deciding if a student is ready for pointe work.
Our Musical Theatre Class is now also longer to allow for more rehearsal time for shows. Our Junior students combine with our Seniors to take part in the end of year musical every June at a local theatre. We encourage students to also explore taking part in Musical Theatre or Acting Solo examinations – a great way to achieve a worldwide recognised qualification, expand skills and have fun.
Dance exams are also available in many styles and with BATD, IDTA, ABT and Glenn Wood Tap. All exams are optional and only sat when the class teacher says the student is fully prepared. Our competition team for this age group continues and if children haven’t already done so, we encourage them to explore the option of performing Solos and Duo/Trios.
