Prima Dance Academy owner Matt Williams explains about the new additions to our dance school timetable and about our exciting new adult ballet class and adult ballet fitness.

We now offer a wide selection of classes at Prima Dance Academy. We wanted to give you more information on the classes that we now offer at Prima Dance Academy. Alongside our ballet dance school we now offer adult ballet fitness and adult ballet classes. As Surreys premium dance school we felt it was important to offer a wide selection of ballet classes as well as adult ballet classes. We have classes in our dance school to support students of all ages from 2 and half upwards.

Our dance classes for kids were the reason behind establishing Prima Dance Academy. We wanted to spread our love and passion for dance through our dance classes for kids. It is with this in mind that we decided to have such a wide range of dance classes for kids from tap, to modern as well as classical ballet classes for kids.

Nursery Ballet

Our nursery ballet class is suitable for children aged two and a half to four and is the foundation of our dance school. This class is the perfect and fun introduction to dance classes and in particular ballet classes for kids. We use our Nursery ballet classes to give children a fun introduction to ballet and movement whilst also introducing them to our training style at our dance school.

Elite Ballet

When we established Prima Dance Academy we felt it was very important to bring a sense of professional dance training to our dance school. Our elite ballet class is the perfect class for this at our dance school. Prima Dance Academies elite ballet class is suitable for children in Royal Academy of Dance grades 1- 3. In this class we will be focusing on performance skills in preparation for competitions/ festivals and performances and stage experience. We will utilise our over 20 years of professional dance experience to make this class the flagship dance class of Prima Dance Academy.

Open Class Ballet

Another great addition to our dance school is our open ballet class for kids. Our open class ballet is suitable for children in Royal Academy of Dance grades 1- 3. The focus of this class is to improve classical ballet technique and to gain a broader ballet vocabulary outside of our Royal Academy of Dance ballet syllabus classes. At Prima Dance Academy we feel that performance skills are vital for any young ballet dancer. However, we also felt that a focus on classical technique was imperative for our dance school.

Modern

Prima Dance Academy is pleased to expand our timetable of our dance school with our modern dance classes for kids. Our modern classes are the perfect compliment to classical ballet classes for kids. In these dance classes we will work on a more lyrical and free form of dance that will allow the children to develop their dance quality and expressionism. This was very important for our dance school that our children had a wide and varied dance education.

Adult Ballet Fitness

Our adult ballet fitness classes are a fun way to kick start your fitness. Our signature adult ballet fitness class combines proven effective training techniques and new school adult ballet to improve all facets of fitness. By using traditional ballet movements complimented by 21st century music our sought after adult ballet fit class evokes a rush of both nostalgia and adrenaline. Suitable for people of all fitness levels as well as experienced dancers our classes will develop you physically and help you to surpass your fitness goals leaving you with a physique to make any Prima ballerina jealous.

Discover the joy of ballet at our ballet school

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

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.

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.
