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 ballet dance classes. We encourage all of our students to begin with RAD dance classes to enable them to develop a strong classical technique. This will not only benefit them in any other Dance form they then choose but in creating valuable skills that are transferable throughout their life and during their entire education at our dance school.

However, alongside these syllabus classes do they offer any other ballet dance classes for kids near me.

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.

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.
