What we offer
We have a comprehensive syllabus designed to suit all ages and levels. Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Funk, Song and Dance. Our classes have a strong emphasis on Classical Ballet technique, using the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet syllabus - based on the Russian Vaganova Method. The ACB training and assessment program emphasizes correct placement, dynamics and performance skills which are all qualities inherent to the Vaganova method.
Imagine a world filled with stories and magical music
Our Dance Play and Kinder Ballet classes provide a perfect introduction to the world of ballet for children as young as three years old. These classes focus on developing your child's imagination and strengthening their confidence whilst teaching poise, grace and creative movement.
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 eisteddfods throughout the year.
