PRIMA Dance Academy Owner Matt Williams talks about how you can discover the joy of ballet at our ballet school.

It was at the age of six that I first discovered the joy of ballet in my local dance school at my first dance classes. I will forever be grateful for everything I learnt at my local dance classes for helping me to a 10 year professional career dancing in theatres across Europe. It is this passion for classical ballet and dance classes that drove me to create the PRIMA Dance Academy and to pass on everything I have learnt to the next generation in our dance classes.The skills and techniques that I learnt at my local dance classes enabled me to audition successfully for the Central School of Ballet where I gained a full scholarship. Using all the experience I learnt at these two dance schools it provided me with the tools, technique and performance experience to gain my first professional dance contract with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures company, the United Kingdom’s largest touring dance company.

Our dance classes aim to provide your children not just with all the technical skills they need to flourish as dancers but to help them discover the joy of ballet. Obviously we place emphasis on technique and The Royal Academy of Dance examinations and are immensely proud of our 100% exam pass rate. However that doesn’t mean we don’t make learning that technique and progressing boring. We feel our passion for classical ballet and dance classes is infectious and passing on that joy of ballet is immensely important to us.

We also place emphasis on passing on the joy of ballet to our adult ballet classes. Our local dance classes are not just limited to kids. Our ballet dance classes are perfect for any adult looking to discover dance or continue with ballet and dance classes that they may have started when they were a child at local dance schools.

Dance classes have provided me with so much joy in my life. The friends that I met when I first took up dancing at the age of 6 are still friends now. Local dance classes are a great way to meet local like minded people and dance schools are a fantastic way to develop community spirit. Our local dance school is a great way for children to meet new friends and to develop social skills and confidence. So what are you waiting for? Discover the joy of ballet at our ballet school today.

The Benefits of Ballet training at The Prima Dance

Prima Dance Academy owner Matt Williams explains the benefits of ballet training at The Prima Dance Academy.

Classical Ballet training has multiple benefits for people of all ages. Our dance school provides Royal Academy of Dance ballet classes, our Elite ballet class as well as ballet classes for adults.

Classical ballet training is the foundation of all major dance forms and having an understanding of classical ballet is beneficial for most other dance forms. Through our 25 years of professional classical ballet experience our dance school aims to enable the next generation to not just flourish technically but also to excel as performers and unleash their inner creativity.

Classical ballet training increases the following facets of fitness:

  • stamina
  • coordination
  • mobility
  • strength
  • flexibility

Through our dance classes our aim is to help your child develop physically in a fun and safe environment. Alongside the health benefits of ballet training ballet classes help to improve children’s musicality, logical thinking, discipline and confidence. Taking ballet classes with other children will also help to build team player skills as the children are required to dance together sometimes in complex patterns and to work together with the other students in the dance school.
Our dance school also has adult ballet classes that are aimed at adults of all abilities. If that is somebody who has danced previously or as a child or somebody who has never laced up a pointe shoe. Ballet training is the perfect class for anybody looking for a fun approach to staying fit and healthy.

PRIMA Dance Academy owner Matt Williams explains why choosing PRIMA Dance Academy is the correct choice if your child is interested in ballet classes.

Best Classes for kids

So your child has shown an interest in ballet classes but which are the best classes for kids? Amongst all our dance classes for kids we feel our kids ballet classes are the best option. Through our experience we advise that all kids should begin with a base knowledge of classical ballet. From there, our students have the foundation to join our other dance classes for kids.

What type of dance classes for kids?

We offer a broad range of Dance classes for kids at PRIMA Dance Academy. But which are the best classes for kids. We give you a brief overview of all of the Dance classes for kids that we offer and explain which are the best classes for kids.

Royal Academy of Dance ballet classes

We believe that The Royal Academy of Dance ballet classes are essential to any ballet school. The Royal Academy of Dance offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments designed to encourage, motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities, outlining a progressive structure for learning and achievement in dance. We encourage all of our students to begin with RAD ballet classes to enable them to develop a strong classical technique. This will not only benefit them in any other Dance classes for kids but in creating valuable skills that are transferable throughout their life.

Elite ballet classes

Our elite ballet classes are aimed at kids who wish to take their dancing to the next level. Working alongside our Royal Academy of Dance syllabus classes our elite ballet classes are used to work further on ballet technique and prepare young dancers for future performances and auditions. Without the need to prepare for Royal Academy of Dance examinations these ballet classes allow us to teach your child further techniques and to work closely in detail on performance material suitable for showcases and festivals. These ballet classes are aimed at children who show promise in their Royal Academy of Dance ballet classes and who might in the future consider taking classical ballet or dance to a more serious level. However, alongside the hard work, our elite ballet classes are an enjoyable experience for all students who enjoy classical ballet as we look to transfer all our passion and knowledge that we have learnt during our very successful careers.

Tap dance classes for kids

Tap dance classes are one of the most popular options for parents as Dance classes for kids. They offer a unique opportunity for children to develop, musicality, rhythm, style and performance in one dance class. Any child considering a future on the stage should take advantage of this opportunity to develop a base understanding of the tap dance technique.

Modern dance classes for kids

Modern dance classes for kids are a fun way to develop performance and stylistic dance moves. Perceived as one of the most fun and physical dance styles modern dance classes for kids are a nice juxtaposition to classical ballet classes for kids. For anybody looking for a future in commercial dance or musical theatre modern dance classes are the best dance classes for kids.

Contemporary dance classes for kids

Contemporary dance classes are one of the best dance classes for kids. With the popularity of contemporary dance on the rise children are expected to have an understanding of contemporary movement and an ability to dance with not just classical ballet technique but a lyrical dance style. If I could recommend one other class to parents to supplement classical ballet it would be contemporary dance as the best dance classes for kids.
