Are you looking to get your little one started in ballet? 🩰

Our Lower School is the perfect starting point, where we offer various age-appropriate classes to begin their ballet training. This includes:

🩰 First Steps: Ages 3 and 4 – Students begin to learn the concepts of dance through the simple class structure, stretching, and expression through music in movement, all while having lots of fun.

🩰 Pre-Ballet: Kindergarten and 1st grade – Students learn many of the basic ballet positions, including some stretching, barre work, and centre. They begin to learn the French terms for ballet movements and positions. Pre-Ballet is a fun and imaginative way to begin a child’s ballet training.

🩰 Level 1: 2nd grade – This class builds on age-appropriate but focused technique training with emphasis on proper use of the feet and legs, acquiring turnout, and developing the ability to “spot” turns.

🩰 Level 2: 3rd grade – This class begins to prepare students for entry into the Upper School for the following year. Emphasis is placed on the knowledge of proper ballet terminology and students begin to learn turns, complex combinations, and proper use of body positions.

Fall registration is NOW OPEN! Register now before it's too late: https://www.actonschoolofballet.com/new-page-1

Why should students be taking supplementary classes?

To build onto our core syllabus, we encourage students to take additional classes to supplement their training.

Supplementary classes are specifically designed to increase basic strength, deepen the student’s understanding of the ballet vocabulary, and broaden the scope of her/his training.

In the Lower School (up to Level 2), students may take additional classes at their syllabus level as supplementary classes. Once students enter the Upper School, they may access a variety of Supplementary Classes.

We welcome students from all backgrounds, even if they are looking to transition to Acton School of Ballet after training at another school!

Our placement process starts by learning the details of your child's background, age, and training. After gathering this information, we'll assess correct fit for a placement class and have the student come and take one of our regular syllabus classes as a guest. This gives us a chance to ascertain a proper level for your student, with our goal to place new students in levels that will be challenging but not overwhelming.
