'Inspiring Passion, Fulfilling Potential'

I am delighted to offer Coaching Programs for students aged 10 years and over.

The Coaching Programs are designed to challenge, inspire and accelerate aspiring students who wish to refine and increase their classical skill levels for a future in classical ballet.

*Acceptance is upon successful audition.

The Training

The Vaganova method is the training style most internationally renowned full time ballet schools base their teaching systems. This is not a syllabus of set classes, but  a method of teaching that produces the beautiful use of the upper body with liquid like extensions and athleticism, that we see in Companies today.

I feel that it is so important that students wishing to attend one of these prestigious institutions, start to train and gain knowledge of this method at an earlier age.

Body Conditioning/Pilates enables students to gain both anatomical knowledge, increased strength and mobility to engage the correct muscles with postural alignment to acquire a clean and sound technique.

Variation coaching provides students with the vital coordination skills, artistic development and understanding of classical ballet repertoire that are vital for a career in classical ballet.

Pointe classes allow for a methodical and comprehensive approach to strengthening. Students are provided with essential knowledge and skills that allows them greater opportunities in the future.
