Triple Heat offers ballet classes for children ages 3 to 18. We offer performance, technique and Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) exam classes striving to meet the needs of all students. Please speak to Michelle Hillier to confirm the technique and/or performance classes that best suit your child’s dancing needs.
Little Feet Ballet (ages 3-6) Children will experience dance through imagination in this playful class. Working on balance, movement coordination, listening, confidence and posture your child will enjoy learning ballet in a gentle and happy environment.
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. Classes with (Tech.) means it is tech only with no performance involved.
RAD Examinations /ITP Program
