Ballet Lessons

DFTS Ballet lessons follow the ISTD syllabus. This is thought of as the foundation of all dance disciplines. This graceful style of dance will improve a child’s posture and balance plus teaches self-discipline and control.

Within a ballet lesson children work on technical exercises. These help them to master the art of deportment, leg and foot alignment, improve arm lines, turn-out and learn about different time signatures. From an early age basic movements are taught.

Children can start Ballet classes from 2 ½ years of age.

DFTS ballet lessons are ISTD Examination classes – pupils have the opportunity to take an exam within this discipline from the age of 6 years.
