The Ballet Academy course of study includes ballet, body conditioning, contemporary, character and creative movement.
Stronger technique brings better self-confidence and therefore increased freedom of expression. We want all our students to reach their maximum potential.

An advanced training programme for students who show potential and have strong technical ability in Ballet. These classes are split into 2 levels; Foundation 7-11yrs and Intermediate 12yrs+ (moved up/placed on assessment) and will take place on the 3rd Sunday of every month. These classes are open to DPA students and NON DPA students and you must take at least one ballet class a week at any dance school to take part in the course. Students will be assessed once a term in order to continue with the next terms training.

DPA is absolutely committed to quality training and to ensure that every child receives enough attention, class sizes are strictly monitored. It is therefore advisable to enrol your child on the waiting list to be sure of a place. We use a pianist which is of enormous benefit to our dancers as it helps to develop a much greater sense of rhythm and musical sensitivity, both extremely important aspects of dance training.

Dates for 2018/2019: 23rd September, 21st October, 18th November, 20th January, 17th February, 17th March, 21st April, 19th May, 16th June, 21st July.

Praise For DPA

My 2 children have been attending DPA for a year. They have been welcomed into this nurturing environment like family. They have grown in confidence and love the very many classes they attend. The staff are amazing, caring and encouraging. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Sophy E

What we both love about DPA is the support all students give each other and how they all celebrate individual or group successes regardless of their own involvement. She has made many friends and considers herself very much one of the DPA family.

DPA is amazing and my second family, we work through struggles and learn how to be better performers because of it.
