Pre-School & Foundational Classes
Canterbury Ballet offers multiple class options from 2.5 years of age to suit your budding ballerina. From entering a world of imagination to the fundamental basics of dance technique, there is a class for your dancer!
Poppie-Belle Hollander & Sonia Woods
Aged 4-14 years old
Mummy & Me
Mummy (or Daddy!) and Me is a dance class designed for beginner dancers aged from 2.5-4 years.
In this class you and your dancer will learn an introduction to movement, music and imagination, all while bonding with your special wee one! The class encourages communication between you and your child as you learn valuable skills together.
Ballet Preps is a dance class designed for dancers aged from 4-5 years.
In this class, students will begin the transition toward dancing independently. Whilst still being an imagination and musicality based class, more emphasis will be placed on basic technique and learning the fundamental movements of ballet and modern dance.
Ballet Preps is a fantastic way to ease your dancer into the wonderful world of movement, while preparing them for further formal dance education, or simply learning valuable skills while building friendships and having a heap of fun.
The CB Foundational class is a dance class suitable for either beginner or current dancers aged from 5-7 years.
Utilising the ABT Curriculum, students will learn the basic foundations of classical technique, whilst still having an emphasis on imagination and musicality. Exams are available for all Primary students, however it is completely at your discretion.
Foundational is a great class for any student who simply enjoys dance, or keen young dancer's who wish to explore that passion further.
Foundational is a fantastic stepping stone into the Junior School at Canterbury Ballet where a myriad of opportunities become available, such as teams, competitions and extension training.
