Little Toes Ballet
Explore an introduction to Ballet for children age 2.5 -4 years. We encourage natural co-ordination, rhythm and movement incorporating basic ballet steps and technique. Classes are full of fun and imaginative games and activities using props such as scarves and pom poms.
Footlights teachers are associated with the ISTD Ballet accredited examination board. Members work on technique and exercises and can progress through graded examinations. We also offer technique classes which can complement any dancer even if they do not take Ballet grades.
Emphasis is on the learning of solid technique, increasing strength, coordination, musicality, rhythm and stage presence. Classes follow the ISTD syllabus, where there is the opportunity to enter for examinations.
Advanced 12+ based on ability
Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, lyrical and ballet. Classes encourage freedom of expression as well as strong technique. Classes are from age 8 upwards. Older students will have the opportunity to take part in the new ISTD contemporary syllabus examinations.
Footlights are now inviting members to prepare for national competitions in their competition dance groups on a Saturday morning. Entrance is by invitation only and you must be taking a graded class with Footlights to be considered.
