Royal Academy of Dance Ballet
From baby ballet through to grades and vocational
Grades one though to six, with the opportunity

This grade is an introduction to ballet for younger children, where they begin to learn ballet positions and movement. Classes meet for 45 minutes, once a week. This training progresses onto some basic ballet foundation on which to build and develop beautiful dancers
Students will learn technical, musical and performance skills in ballet. Classes are designed to encourage students to enjoy ballet as a form of physical exercise, whilst also teaching timing, rhythm and musicality skills
This grade is designed to develop the basic principles of classical ballet technique and the recorded orchestral music inspires students to dance, giving them an opportunity to develop their dance performance skills
Building upon accomplished dancing learned from Grade 1-3, the knowledge and skills gained through completion of Grade 4 provides a base for continued progression. The underlying philosophy of Grade 4 is to expand upon the foundations previously nurtured
Young students at this level are very confident and accomplished dancers, and this grade develops more advanced skills. Students are encouraged to take two ballet classes a week at this level
Achievement at this level significantly develops desired competencies such as self-expression, physical fitness, stamina, discipline and confidence. Again, at this level students are encouraged to take two ballet classes per week, which supports significant improvements

I've been in a few different dance schools but love this one the most! My contemporary and ballet lessons are great but I especially love the sense of community that The Dance Factory gives.
Miss Katy’s dance classes are amazing. I wish I could dance with her everyday

My daughter has been attending baby ballet for around 6 months and loves coming to each lesson. She has grown in confidence and how she expresses herself and absolutely adores Miss Katy!
