ISTD Imperial Classical Ballet

A Disciplined Beauty

Classical Ballet is the most important style of dance, it teaches a high level of technique and discipline and also allows the dancer to be expressive and artistic.

Demi Pointe

Preparation for Pointe

This is a preparation class for pointe work to focus on the correct technique and to build up strength. demi-pointe gives a dancer a more gradual transition to pointe work. Wearing the correct Demi-Pointe shoes allows the dance to get used to the feel of a pointe shoe before learning to dance on pointe.

Pointe Work

A Delicate Strength

Every ballet dancer dreams of the day they can finally purchase their first pair of pointe shoes! This class is an invitation only class for when a students has reached a a high level of ballet technique and strength. 
It is where the dancer will stand on the tip of their toes in specially designed shoes.  They are all designed to support the full weight of the dancer.
The effect is simply beautiful, the essence of grace and poise.

Street Dance

Pop it & Lock it

Street Dance is a fun and energetic style of dance. It is an umbrella term which encompasses a range of dance styles characterised by descriptions such as hip hop, funk and breakdancing. Its diverse nature has taught us new styles such as popping, locking, waving and krumping.
