At the Debbie Fyffe Theatre School we believe that ballet lessons are great for everyone. You may want to be a princess and learn grace and elegance or you might wish to be the greatest ballet star the world has ever known, what we know is that ballet skills improve all dancing styles. It is commonly 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 DFTS 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 that will go on to be the cornerstone of all future dance.
At DFTS Children can start Ballet classes from 2 ½ years of age.
DFTS ballet lessons follow the ISTD syllabus and are Examination classes. Pupils have the opportunity to take an exam within this discipline from 6 years upwards. It is incredibly rewarding for a child to achieve success in an dance examination.
