Ballet

Director of Ballet – Carole Speirs

Ballet is a formalized style of dance to create expression through movement. At Auckland Academy of Dance we teach the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabi from Pre School— Solo Seal.  See www.rad.org.nz

Graded ballet classes are taught for school aged children from 5 – 18years.

All students are encouraged to participate in our end of year concert. This will be held at the Raye Freedman Performing Arts Centre at Epsom Girls Grammar. There are rehearsals at the theatre and 4 concerts that students perform in.

This year’s concert will be in December 2017 (dates to be confirmed), this includes rehearsal and show dates.  See the Concerts page for more information.
