Qualification Level: Diploma Level 6
The course places great emphasis on the fine-tuning and training classical dancers. The main subjects are Ballet Training, pointe work, repertoire, boys work, pas de deux, virtuosity and contemporary. In all of these subjects, we work towards the enhancement of classical technique, strength, purity of line, co-ordination, quality of movement and artistry. By the end of the second year, we aim for dancers to have reached classical company standard, so students can be prepared and able to audition or attend company classes wherever possible, during the third year.
Ballet Training not only concentrates on strength of technique in the dance modules but works on performance skills, Pas De Deux, Audition Technique and International competitions.
Dancers also have access to our on-site Strength and Conditioning Services to aid Dancers with Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation. Our Strength Coaches are also on hand every day to help the Dancers develop Flexibility, Strength, Power and Stability.

Competition Training – The duration of the module is one year and involves specialist training in classical solos from mainstream repertoire with a view to entering the larger international competitions i.e. Varna, Prix de Lausanne etc. This involves a great deal of study of many different styles and roles from the classics which have to be presented with style and flair at professional level. A further contemporary solo is often also required. KS Dance competes amongst students from the best ballet schools in the UK.
