Ballet 2 & 3 yrs

Our 2 and 3 year old classes are very special as they are a child’s first experience of the world of dance. VACANI provides FUN, structured classes, which include set ballet exercises and steps, nursery rhymes and magical stories, encouraging children to develop their imagination. Some of our classes are accompanied by live piano music which adds a very special experience to our classes.

Ballet 3 & 4 yrs

Ballet for 3 & 4 yrs is for pre-school children, who are due to start Reception in September the following year. This is a beautiful and imaginative class which aims to encourage our Baby Ballerina’s to express themselves through movement and dance. Children will learn how to interpret ballet stories to wonderful musical scores played by our some of London’s most prominent Ballet Pianists. This fun class introduces the early foundations of ballet technique, ballet discipline and encourages independent learning. Parents are invited to watch their child in a class presentation at the end of each term.

Ballet Transition (Pre-Primary) for Reception Year

This class is for children who have started School/Reception/Kindergarten. We call this class ‘Transition’; providing a transition from Baby Ballet to learning ‘real ballet’. Our week day classes are scheduled so that children can come straight from school and we also run Saturday classes which are very popular. Our Transition class is a big ‘step up’ from our pre-school programme, and we are aware that our week day pupils are adapting to a full day at school so we keep the atmosphere FUN by applying a range of ballet themes, games and concepts, whilst learning the foundations of ballet technique, strengthening exercises, and gentle ballet stretching. Parents are invited to watch a class presentation at the end of each term.
