Classical ballet training and modern dance, GCSE Dance and contemporary dance Studios at Ballasalla Community Hall Our aim at the Academy is to offer the highest standard of dance training we can. Learning to dance not only builds self-confidence in children but self-discipline and dedication too. Children also get to interact with students from other schools and build new friendships. Every student in the school takes part in annual exam sessions as well as performing in our school shows held at the Gaiety Theatre. Students learn whichever genre they choose (ballet or modern contemporary dance) in a fun and positive learning environment. Every year our students take professional examinations with the Royal Academy of Dance for Ballet and IDTA for Modern. This in itself ensures a solid and secure build up of training in the genre. Ages: 4-20 years Duration: Lessons take place Monday to Friday between 4pm and 8pm and on Saturdays 9am to 5pm. Summer schools run throughout the school summer holidays. Each class of ballet or modern is 1 hour or 45 mins for the very young.
