Our early age ballet classes teach children the love of dance in a warm and caring atmosphere. These classes help to develop coordination and musicality. Our teachers are highly experienced RAD professionals and all classes are accompanied by a skilled live pianist. Our senior students always participate in our younger children’s classes to help demonstrate steps properly and inspire the juniors to learn to listen, be in a class situation and follow directions from the teachers.
Parent observation is welcome. Please contact Heather 021 120 2608 or email
approx 6 till 11 years
Children have now progressed to enjoy a more structured form of learning through syllabus classes. The structure increases as they progress through the grades.
At MEBA we encourage children to take pride in their developing abilities and to appreciate their accomplishments. Exams are encouraged, as it gives students a goal to work towards but they are not essential.
The varied RAD graded syllabus includes barre work, centre practice, character dances and the development of performance skills.

from approx 12 years
Our senior students follow the RAD vocational syllabus. Pointe and open classes complement the syllabus classes. These vocational classes can be a stepping stone to fulltime dance training and a career in the dance world.
Future Dancers Programme
The Future Dancers programme is a transitional programme designed to prepare students for full time ballet training leading towards a professional ballet career. It involves a 2 hour ballet class, pointe class, repertoire, contemporary and specialised coaching. At the end of our inaugural year in 2016 four dancers were accepted into full-time training in NZ, Australia and London.
Enrolments are still open for 2017 and students are welcome to continue after school classes at their existing dance school. For more information please contact Melinda on 021 610 231 or email
MEBA follows the NZAMD (New Zealand Association of Modern Dance) Jazz, Contemporary and Tap syllabus and students are encouraged to sit exams in all these disciplines.
The variety of classes contribute to the versatility and breadth of training available at MEBA and many ex students are dancing professionally in Ballet companies, musical theatre shows, contemporary dance companies, and in commercial dance around the world.
Parent observation is welcome.
MEBA encourages dance fitness and towards this classes are available in Swiss ball conditioning, junior and senior stretch classes taught by experienced ex-professional Russian rhythmic gymnasts. Adult ballet classes and Barre Fit are offered during the day throughout the year.
