  • Classical Ballet

    The technique of classical ballet is learned and perfected in a highly structured daily regime of classroom work. It is here that technique is maintained, strengthened and constantly refined.

  • Contemporary Ballet

    In addition to classical techniques, our students study contemporary techniques. Our contemporary classes draw from both modern dance and classical ballet for its training method.

  • Pas de Deux

    Moorland students learn how to respect and work with others and are able to become confident with partnering skills.

  • Character, Folk and Spanish Dance

    Character dance is integral to much of the classical ballet repertoire. The students study Spanish dance in the form of Flamenco and Danza. Estilizada.

  • Choreography

    Classes develop the imagination and creative response in each dancer, and an understanding of the choreographic process.

  • Strength and Body Conditioning

    Various forms of cross training are used to strengthen and loosen muscles as well as aligning the body and helping to prevent injury.

Associate Classes

The programme provides non syllabus masterclasses for boys and girls aged from 7 years. The aim is to provide an opportunity for like-minded children to meet and share their passion.

 

The programme has been created to complement the student’s current training enabling them to continue to study with their regular dance teacher, whilst experiencing an insight into vocational training.
