Ballet at THD…
Triple Heat offers ballet classes for children ages 3 to 18 year. We offer performance, technique and Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) exam classes striving to meet the needs of all students. Please speak to Michelle Henly to confirm the technique and/or performance classes that best suit your child’s dancing needs.
Open/Performance Ballet (General & Intensive Program) ages 6+ Dancers grow and move through the levels gaining a strong technical foundation, allowing students to become accomplished both in ballet and other dance genres, and to develop a love for dance in an enjoyable and nurturing environment. Levels correspond with the RAD program and we encouraged dancers to take both open and exam ballet. Only the classes with (Perf.) will involve a performance.
RAD Examinations Program
Graded Levels (General & Intensive Program) – Primary to Grade 6 – Students may take any grade without having completed a previous examination provided they meet the minimum age and level requirement.
