Ballet class

At Dance Arena Ballet and Stage School we offer classes in RAD Ballet, ISTD Tap, ISTD Modern, Musical Theatre, Drama and Singing for both boys and girls aged 4 upwards.

We follow the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus for classical ballet which prepares the students for examinations from Pre-Primary through to Advanced II. The Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and examinations are internationally recognised and accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) in England and The Council for Dance Education and Training (CDET).


For Tap and Modern we follow the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) syllabi, which prepares pupils for examinations from Primary to Advanced II. The ISTD is the largest recognised Dance Teacher Association in the world.

We encourage our students to set achievable goals for themselves through either examinations or presentation classes. However examinations are not compulsory and more importantly pupils are encouraged to develop discipline, creativity and confidence. These will stand them in good stead for the future whatever they decide to do.

For the younger students we offer the Melody Movement / Melody Bear Syllabus. These are for both boys and girls aged 18 months to 4 years and have been specifically designed to enhance your child’s physical development, coordination, spatial awareness, sensory development, creativity and self-expression, working individually, with a partner, or as a group.
