About the School
Lower school classes are held at Harborne Baptist Church in Harborne Park Road and consist of the following: an introductory class, which is not examined, and two ballet classes. The first class is for 3 year olds and consists of basic movements and mimes set to music. The second class is for 4 year olds and leads to the IDTA Preparatory Ballet examination. The third class is for 5 year olds and leads to the IDTA Primary Grade Examination.
Middle School classes are based at Harborne Primary School and consist of Ballet Grades 1 through to 5. Pupils follow the syllabus for each grade in preparation for an examination at the end of the summer term each year. Free movement and character dances are also taught to encourage flexibility and musicality.
Upper school classes consist of Ballet Grades 6 and 7 and the Major Examinations. The training is highly technical and demanding, however it is extremely stimulating and rewarding.
Additional classes are given before each examination to ensure children are well prepared.
