about us

Celebrated for its grace and beauty, Classical Ballet is the traditional form of dance that evolved from the court dances of King Louis XIV in the 1600's. Over time it's been refined to the skilled and artistic vision we see today.

A sound classical ballet technique provides an easy transition into other forms of dance. Ballet trains the body carefully, developing alignment (line), balance, strength, control, coordination and flexibility. Skills are built up in a logical and systematic way; ensuring students master each progression before moving on to the next one.

Dancentre recommends students learn Classical Ballet before or alongside other dance genres.

Dancentre students have the opportunity of being assessed & examined in the Southern Federation of Dance (SFD) classical ballet syllabus.
