Ballet classes for children: Junior Ballet Program
Our Junior-Youth ballet program is based on the 8 levels of the Vaganova method, with clear progression, a comprehensive syllabus and exams. This program is designed for the student who dances 1-2 times weekly, who pursues ballet as a personal interest but wants a strong training. Here at RBA, we believe every dancer and body type is capable of mastering clean and beautiful technique through the Vaganova method, one of the strongest pedagogies in professional ballet. Through its art and discipline, we help bring out every dancer’s best - in technique, artistry and performance.
Our Junior-Youth ballet program welcomes students from age 4 and up. Students who wish to pursue professional training should consider joining our Pre-professional program, where training aims to equip dancers with professional level technique and performance/competition opportunities. See here.
