The Study Programme of the Ballet Department

The Ballet Department trains young dancers in a multi-level study programme.

The programme includes:

Classical Ballet Training

At this stage of training, only children with the appropriate physical ability and detectable development of body awareness and musicality are accepted after the entrance examination.

Over the five stages of training, the pupils receive intensive ballet tuition.

The classic academic dance teaching is based on the Waganova method adapted to current stage practice. Over the years, further forms of dance are added: character dance, variations, repertoire. In the first and second years, there are classes twice per week (1.5 hours), in the third and fourth years it is three times per week (1.5 hours), and in the fifth year it is five times per week (1.5 hours).

The pupil progresses to the next class on the basis of his/her performance in the annual tests. Attention is paid to the dance, rhythmic and musical aspects of performance, flexibility of the body and overall physical and artistic impression. Progress to the next level can be threatened by a lack of discipline or absence from the classes.

It is possible to make an appointment for an audition at any time as agreed. All classes take place in the afternoons so that pupils can attend school in the morning.
