Classical Ballet

This class is recommended for students age 5 years and above. The traditional art form of Classical Ballet reinforces posture including core stability, suppleness, stretching, balance, alignment, strength and vocabulary. Straight ballet classes are on offer from age 5 years when the student has developed concentration and focas. Optional entry into the Borovansky syllabus for exams in August which includes compulsory attendance during the last week of the July school holidays for a four day holiday programme.

 

EXAMINATIONS

Dance Central enters students in an Australian credited dance exam syllabus through the Australian Institute of Classical Dance.

 

The ballet syllabus is called Borovansky. Edouard Borovansky first came to Australia in 1929 to accompany Anna Pavlova with the Ballet Russes. He stayed on and formed the Borovansly Ballet Company, commencing in 1940. It evolved into the Australian Ballet Company in 1962, as we know it today.

 

Dance Central holds a Classical Ballet Holiday Programme for exam candidates prior to the Exams. It is usually in the second week of the July School Holidays.
