LAPA

Ballet is the basis of all dance and is taught to create and reinforce flexibility, enhance posture, grace, poise, and educate the student with ballet terminology. Ballet benefits many kinds of dance styles and sports. It enhances alignment, equilibrium, strength and flexibility, and it is highly recommended to students who wish to have a strong foundation in any form of dance.

Our aim is to train and educate both motivated students who wish to become outstanding ballet professionals and recreational ballet dancers. We also offer classes to all who wish to integrate ballet as part of their core training, no matter what career path they may follow. The ballet training we offer utilises the syllabus of the Royal Academy of Dance and Vaganova syllabus. Our lessons are based on an integrated approach focusing on the balance between body, mind and soul in dance.
