Children’s Ballet and Performance Opportunities

Performance opportunities are part of the children’s ballet curriculum at the School of Classical Russian Ballet. This is a wonderful and expressive part of the children’s ballet training programme that the school offers. All young children enjoy performing in front of family, friends and members of the public, and showing them the culmination of their hard work in ballet classes. We find that performing onstage helps build confidence and discipline in young children. As with all performance work at the school, rehearsals are serious, and commitment is required to take part in performances but the children respond with enthusiasm to the preparations and rehearsals and they all love performing. We always aim to include theatrical and performance elements in all our children’s ballet classes, as we find this captures the child’s imagination and helps foster a passion for ballet and dance within them.
