General Division

Carefully structured programs in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, musical theatre, hip hop, acting and voice provide a well-rounded education in dance focusing on the development of self confidence and pose. The Academy’s expert faculty nurture their students in a caring and creatively stimulating environment.

In addition to weekly classes, students enrolled in classical ballet may also have the opportunity to prepare for entrance in to Royal Academy of Dance examinations. We enter these examinations every other year, and take careful consideration as to which classes would most benefit from this learning experience.

All children perform in the Academy’s year-end June performance, a full-length adaptation of a well-loved children’s story.

At the core of all General Division programs is a joy of movement, reaching personal goals through hard work and discipline, understanding health and fitness, and feeling a part of the wonderful Academy family.
