Level 4

Students learn more complicated ballet steps, and a greater emphasis on technique is introduced. All the skills learned previously are refined and developed. More challenging sequences are practiced and refined, and students add to their expanding dance vocabulary. Students in this level are working towards the Standard 4 Cecchetti exam.

Ages listed are for guidance purposes only. Dancers may be placed by ability and/or previous dance experience at teacher's discretion.

Dancers in Primary and Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4 and Level 5, all work towards the Cecchetti exams. Teachers will spend from 3-5 Terms preparing each child for an exam in that level. Children doing multiple classes in a week may progress more quickly. If you have any questions about exams, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the office.

Classes for other levels and age groups may be added, please enquire or register your interest here!

We do not charge administration or registration fees.

Payment is due before the first day of term, for returning students, or before the first session after the trial class, for new students. 

Under extenuating circumstances, missed classes can be made up by arrangement with the school, with the student attending another class at the same level on a different day, where space and circumstances allow. Non-attendance of classes or catch-up classes will result in the forfeiture of those sessions; make-up classes do not carry over from one term to the next. There is no pay-per-class facility.

Please note that parents are required to stay on site throughout the class.
