PRIMA Dance Academy Principal Hayley Macri explains why our ballet classes make us the top ballet school in Kingston Upon Thames.
Here at PRIMA Dance Academy our selection of ballet classes, Royal Academy of Dance classes and adult ballet classes set us apart from the rest of the ballet schools in Kingston. Our unique approach and over 25 years of professional classical ballet experience enables us to inspire, motivate and give our pupils all the skills they need to advance not only technically but to flourish as performers.
Below we give you an insight into each of our ballet classes that we offer in our dance school in Kingston upon Thames and why we believe that makes us the top ballet school in Kingston Upon Thames.
Royal Academy of Dance 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 form they then choose but in creating valuable skills that are transferable throughout their life.
Elite ballet classes
Our elite ballet classes are aimed at children 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.
Adult ballet classes
Our adult ballet classes are aimed at dancers of all levels. So if you have never stepped foot in a dance class our staff will introduce you slowly into classical ballet technique whilst helping you fall in love with classical ballet classes. Equally, if you have done ballet in the past, our adult ballet classes are the perfect opportunity to continue your journey with classical ballet and to delve deeper into technique and performance. Adult ballet classes are also a brilliant way of working on all areas of fitness in a fun and challenging way without the need to step foot inside a gym.
