Infant and Pre-school Ballet

Ages 2 to 5

Our early age ballet, tap and jazz 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 professionals and some 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.

Children’s Ballet Classes

RAD Graded Classes approx 6  to 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 grade syllabus includes character, dancing and the development of performance skills.

At the end of our inaugural year in 2016 four dancers were accepted into full-time training in NZ, Australia and London. After 8 years we now have alumni dancing in companies and full time schools around the world.
