Classic Ballet (R.A.D.)

Ballet is the foundation of dance technique and is carried over to most other dance styles.

Ballet dancer

At EDC we hold the highest regard for the training of our ballet dancers. From beginner to advanced classes, students are formally trained while being taught the value of technique and inspired to refine the skills necessary to grow as dancers. All of our ballet instructors have studied vigorously to ensure the next generation of dancers is given the knowledge and confidence to execute steps and perform. RAD ballet exam classes are offered for those who wish to achieve certification and in the future have the option of pursuing a teaching career. Ballet also improves strength, flexibility and balance while increasing the student’s focus and presenting themselves in a graceful manner.
