At Brighton Dance Academy, we believe that classical ballet is the foundation of all dance styles. We are very fortunate to have some of Melbourne’s leading ballet teachers providing ballet classes in many different forms
Our ballet school offers ballet for beginners of any age, with classes available to suit all levels of ability. Students can commence dance classes from the age of 3, with our Kinder Ballet classes offering a fun and creative dance environment.
Students looking to take ballet seriously can work their way through the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus and are taught by leading ballet teachers including International RAD examiner Jane Inglis-Keen and RAD VIC panellist Rachael Brierly.
For students wanting to do recreational ballet and who do not wish to do exams, Brighton Dance Academy offers Junior Ballet, Intermediate Ballet and Advanced Ballet
These are energetic once a week ballet classes and don’t have an exam commitment.
Learning ballet teaches children discipline, poise, determination and coordination and helps to build self confidence. All of our ballet classes cater to boys and girls and help students build solid foundations and strength for other modern dance styles.
Students from our ballet school have gone on to perform in Melbourne Youth City Ballet and study at professional institutions such as The Australian Ballet School, VCASS, The Australian Conservatoire of Ballet, Patrick Studios Australia, Laine Theatre Arts (UK) and more.
