New Teachers

Teaching the Thursday classes will be Robert Mills, former company dancer and Saturday Adult Ballet teacher, as well as Polly Hilton Demi-Soloist with West Australian Ballet. Teaching Sunday will be Florence Leroux-Coleno, WAB Soloist and Tuesday Adult Ballet teacher, and Melissa Boniface Demi-Soloist at West Australian Ballet.


We have introduced a new class on Sunday mornings, a Pre-Pointe class. This class is designed for students who have at least one year ballet experience but have never worked en pointe before, or students who are returning to pointe work after a number of years and are not yet ready for the Tuesday night Pointe class. This class is done in ballet flats unless otherwise discussed with the teacher. The class will consist of a ballet warm up followed by strengthening exercises at the barre and in the centre, to prepare students for pointe work. This class is most suitable for students at a Beginners level or higher.

Christmas Break

A reminder that the last class for 2015 will occur on Sunday 20 December. We will resume classes in 2016 on Tuesday 12 January.
