Dance to Express
Welcome to our new family!
My vision for En Pointe Ballet School is to inspire students of all ages to fall in love with the art of dance and gain confidence to “dance to express”, with an emphasis on high quality training in the more traditional styles of dance.
If you are looking for a nurturing and caring place for your child to dance, En Pointe Ballet School is the place for you.
Located in the beautiful Adelaide Hills community of Belair, En Pointe’s mission is to instil the love of music and dance in your child and encourage them to express themselves with confidence and poise.
I look forward to helping your child become the best version of themselves they can be.
The Junior School
Dance with Miss Sarah
“Dance with Miss Sarah” has been carefully developed for the early years of 18 months up to 5 years of age.
Using a playful approach with instruments and props, kids will have a great time singing, dancing and making new friends in a warm and nurturing environment.
These classes each run for 30-45 minutes and parents are always welcome to jon in the fun with their little ones. We have educational themes that run for 4-5 weeks at a time, such as ” How we move”, “Fairyland”, “Outer Space”, “The Farmyard” etc. All exercises and games are age appropriate and are designed to encourage creativity, use of imagination and help to build self-confidence.
We will learn about balance, co-ordination, musicality and rhythm, following a leader, cognitive skills, patience, the ability to be able to work in a group and so much more!
Be sure to register for your suitable class and come along and try.
I look forward to meeting you! Love and Sunshine, Miss Sarah.
The Middle School
En Pointe Ballet School
The Middle School offers classes in the traditional style of Cecchetti Classical Ballet from Pre-primary through to Grade 3 Level. The focus will be on developing a strong technical foundation, an understanding of posture, building confidence and experimenting with artistry in a fun, social and positive learning environment.
Classical Ballet requires close attention to detail, mastery, harmony, precision, discipline and social grace. These are the skills that help young people succeed in the adult world.
Students from Pre-primary level are encouraged to extend themselves through participation in exams, open days and concerts.
Grades 1, 2 and 3 level students wishing to partake in ballet exams will need extra classes leading up to the examinations held at the end of the year.
” Well-trained Cecchetti dancers have a purity of line and simplicity of style which enables them to take their places in dance companies of other genres of classical ballet.”
En Pointe Ballet School also offers classes in Hip Hop, Musical Theatre and Jazz following the ATOD syllabus.
The Senior School
En Pointe Ballet School
My vision is to create a Senior School that is full of honest, supportive, passionate and self-disciplined individuals who are willing to work hard at encompassing the beautiful style of Cecchetti Ballet and also having fun in other styles of dance.
I am excited to start building En Pointe’s school/family in this wonderful community through cultural awareness, co-operation and like minds. I look forward to helping students develop confidence, poise and leadership skills while forming friendships and having fun in an accepting environment.
Annual examinations and state competitions from Grade 4 through to Advanced Level will be offered by invitation only to students showing interest.
Extra classes may be required.
