Since 1996, the school has adopted the Russian Based (Vaganova) method of teaching Ballet under the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet, (ACB), of Ms. Christine Walsh, A.M. Their students have regularly taken the ACB examinations with EXCELLENT Results. Some of these students were even given “Personal Scholarships and or Study Grants “by Ms. Walsh.
The teachers are also using the National Ballet Syllabus, which is based on the Royal Academy of Dance (London), Cechetti (Italian) and Russian. This type of syllabus encompasses the teaching of classical ballet suited to the physique of the Filipino children, a syllabus that fast tracks the child’s learning without straining its body, and a syllabus for the child who needs to appreciate the rich blend of Asian and Western influences in their life.
The dance curriculum includes regular technique classes in classical and contemporary ballet, modern and jazz dance. Additional instruction is provided in Pas de Deux classes, Character, Improvisation, Mime, Choreography, Creative Movements and Musical Theater. Our curriculum is designed to prepare a student to enter a college dance program, to dance professionally, or just to develop a life-long love of the art of grace and movement.
