About The Academy
Active. Graceful. Strong
We offer ballet classes in the Cecchetti method for children from the age of 2 ½ years and up.
At Emily Dance, we believe every child's class should be special. Our babies class introduce students to the magical world of dance, where they learn to express themselves through music and movement in a structured environment that encourages creativity.
From the age of 5 years and up we introduce the Cecchetti Classical Ballet Syllabus, encouraging dancers to continue developing their confidence and skill as they continue to grow into strong young ballerinas.
Students have the opportunity to work towards their Cecchetti Classical Ballet Examinations, should you and your child wish as this is not a requirement of the Academy. Our exams are adjudicated by professional examiners from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD). As students progress through the levels some of these examinations, later on, are equivalent to a GCSE, AS or A-Level.
We believe that music is an essential part of a dancers journey and so all our classes are accompanied by live piano music, which allows children to interpret and understand a range of music styles and tempos.
Our aim at the Academy is for every student to feel confident, inspired, supported and above all to have fun. Our classes aim to not only create strong skilled dancers but to also develop enthusiasm and passion in dance that will remain with our young dancers for the rest of their lives.
We would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
