Exeter Ballet Classes

Ballet is the basis of all dance forms and our pupils who gain a sound knowledge in this dance genre will often progress well in further areas of dance training.

Joanna Mardon School of Dance Exeter Grade 7 and 8 Ballet studentsWe offer ballet classes in Exeter from the age of 3 years old for boys and girls.  We follow the Royal academy of Dance syllabus which gives a structured progressive training at all levels.  Alongside the formal syllabus we incorporate free, creative elements to the classes appropriate to the age and level of the children.

Our ballet classes are aimed at producing technically sound dancers who are inspired to be creative at all ages.  Fun and enjoyment underpins all dance classes and the younger children are encouraged to use imagination and an array of props within classes.
