What we offer
We have a comprehensive syllabus designed to suit all ages and levels. Classical Ballet (Vaganova based), Jazz, Tap, Contemporary and Funk. Our classes have a strong emphasis on Classical Ballet technique, using the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet syllabus - based on the Russian Vaganova Method. The Australian Conservatoire of Ballet training and assessment program emphasizes correct placement, dynamics and performance skills which are all qualities inherent to the Vaganova method.
Glen Iris School of Dance offers classes for students as young as three years old through to our Half Day Intensive Training and Platform Year Programs. Students are offered the opportunity to sit annual examinations (Australian Conservatoire of Ballet Syllabus) and take part in our mid and end of year concerts, both staged at the Alexander Theatre. Selected students are also invited to participate in competitions and eistedfodds throughout the year.
