Classical Ballet (ages 7-18)
Precise, controlled, articulate and beautiful to watch - ballet has been a part of society and culture since the 19th century, and is still loved and adored by many in 21st century. Characterised by light, graceful movement, classical ballet is one of the hardest yet most rewarding styles of dance to perfect. At Parnell School of Dance, our philosophy focuses heavily on a combination of classical technique and emotive creative expression using the ATOD classical ballet syllabus. The syllabus was upgraded and designed in 2002 by the Classical Ballet Core Committee. This Committee included well known Ballet Teachers and Examiners, including Graduates of The Australian Ballet School. Musical accompaniment is by leading pianist Gary Dionysius. Gary is Company Pianist for The Queensland Ballet.
All of our intermediate students are also encouraged to attend a weekly strength and conditioning dance pilates class lead by studio owner and qualified pilates instructor Catie Harsant.
