Introduction

Whilst The NSW Ballet School is a professional training school, it does not only cater to the very talented and career minded young dancer. If physical fitness; co-ordination; posture; the pure enjoyment of dance or appreciation of the classics is the main goal for ballet training, The NSW Ballet School will ensure that these goals are met.

Students are taught the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Syllabus. Founded in 1920 by a group of celebrated European Dancers, the RAD has come to represent the very highest standards in the teaching of classical ballet. It has grown to become the largest most influential public examining body for classical ballet in the world, operating in some 50 countries. The NSW Ballet School goes one step further.

The School's Founder, Ms Fleur Letitia, has drawn on her considerable training and professional experience with ballet companies around the world to develop a system of anatomical teaching. Students learn not only the rudimentary steps, but also how to use muscle structure and technique to gain a better understanding of the physical demands placed on a ballet dancer. The NSW Ballet School has an excellent history of examinations and competition results (please refer to 'Achievements') Until 2008, the School achieved 100% Distinctions in all Graded examinations.Those students who have been chosen to represent The NSW Ballet School in Eisteddfods have won first place in their sections.

The School now offers Jazz and Lyrical / Contemporary. These classes are a great way for students to learn new skills, increase flexibility and physical fitness all in a non competitive, fun environment.
