All classes > Ballet


LDA offers high quality ballet classes for all ages from pre-school through to adults. Ballet teaches great posture, discipline, and the technique that is required for many other forms of dance. Ballet is a wonderful starting point for children, as it develops a good skill base. LDA offers classes for career orientated students as well as those who wish to study dance for pure enjoyment. At LDA we are lucky to have four RAD qualified teachers to pass on their expertise to our students.


Finding the right class for you:

We structure our classes mostly by age, however as the grades increase previous ballet experience is required, so if your child is new to ballet they may need to start in a lower grade.
