class Structure

Our Younger Dancers

Our younger dancers will be taught from a unique Stardust-created syllabus that has been created from reflecting on 10+ years experience teaching ballet to children in the Cambridge area.

We run themed ballet lessons that are fun and grounded in structure to ensure the children enjoy themselves and learn key ballet fundamentals.

Our Older Dancers

Our older dancers will follow an ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance) syllabus with optional class tests. Classes are taught by an ISTD qualified dance instructor.

Exams are not compulsory but give the children something to work towards and can provide a great sense of achievement outside of an academic setting.

Fairytale Ballet - First Steps

For ages 18 Months - 4 years

Our Fairytale Ballet - First Steps class will introduce children to the beautiful world of Ballet using magical music and exciting props.

To keep our classes fresh and exciting for little ones we follow a specially developed syllabus exploring a different theme every 6 weeks. Examples of some of our most popular themes are "Fairy Magic" "Teddy Bears Picnic" and "Butterflies & Bugs" After completing each theme the children receive a special certificate.

We have found that this class is fantastic for improving children's confidence, co-ordination and musicality in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It is also great for preparing children for a school environment as they will learn to listen to a teacher, follow instructions, share and learn to work with others all while making new friends and having lots of fun! 

Parents/careers are invited to join in with their child's class to ensure they get maximum enjoyment out of the class.

Once your child is 3+ and is confident and independent enough to attend classes without their parent/carer they might be ready for our next class up - Fairytale Ballet - for ages 3-6!

FAIRYTALE BALLET

For ages 3-6

Fairytale Ballet follows a specially designed syllabus for boys and girls aged 3-6 created by our very own Miss Hannah! These classes will introduce them to the beautiful world of Ballet exploring fairy tales and the music and characters they include. Our classes include themed music, props, exciting storytelling and creative dance; all used to help improve children's confidence, co-ordination and musicality in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

To keep our classes exciting we will explore a different Fairytale or story every half-term with printable colouring pages and certificates at the end for all children. This gives the children a sense of achievement and the children love collecting their certificates!

After attending our Fairytale Ballet classes children are invited to join one of our Ballet classes following the ISTD syllabus as the next step in their Ballet journey.
