Classical Ballet is the core of all dance. The great skill & strength of this art form is inspiring to all young dancers. 

Ballet is fantastic for posture & fitness.

at RAPA we follow the ISTD syllabus.

Modern-day footballers & rugby players practice Ballet to improve their balance & core and we are proud to have many boys taking up the subject at RAPA.

Baby Ballet

A creative Ballet session for 2-4-year-old in fantastic studios both during the week and on a Saturday with free parking & a waiting room. 

See your child's confidence grow before your eyes and watch how excited they get about their dancing lesson. Some children will naturally need more time than others to settle and while we encourage parents to 'go and have a cup of tea ;), we also understand that some children need someone with them for the first few weeks. 

Dance is the perfect activity for your little ones. It is creative, active, engaging & fun and encourages them to take direction in a friendly and nurturing environment, eventually!! ;) 

Please follow this link for what to expect in your first class with us.

Modern

Modern Dance is the basis for all dance you see today in the theatre, T.V, and in Music Videos.

Coupled with Jazz and Hip Hop, Modern gives the dancer great strength and a good understanding of Dance, musicality, flow, and dynamics. At RAPA DANCE we follow the ISTD syllabus and Jazz Awards.

Progressive Ballet Technique

Progressing Ballet Technique is a new form of strength and technique training for the dancer. 'thera' bands and Gym Balls are used to help the student reach their potential.

Improved technique is noticeable almost instantly and this is, therefore, a really popular class and compulsory for Grade 3 Ballet.
