THE IMPORTANCE OF CLASSICAL DANCE TRAINING IN THE YOUNGER YEARS Through participation in dance classes or ballet classes at a professional ballet school or dance school, children not only expand their movement vocabulary, developing control and skill of fundamental movements, but can develop self-confidence and self-esteem, as well as social skills. It is also important for children to be taught the correct basics of Classical Ballet, as ballet is the basis of all forms of dance. Since 1973 The Graduate College of Dance in Perth has provided vocational classical ballet classes and dance training at an elite level. Due to the success of the vocational course for students aged 10-17 years of age, and requests for the College to provide a course for younger children, the Introductory Dance Performance Course was developed to incorporate a syllabus specifically designed for younger students aged five years old to nine years old. Apart from having fun, the benefits of students participating in this course are to: • Learn the correct basic techniques in ballet dancing taking into consideration a young developing body • Develop a joy of movement and freedom of expression in creative dance • Inspire the creativity of young imaginations, as well as supporting and developing young minds • Encourage individualism and teamwork The Introductory Dance Performance Courseis taught by senior faculty of the College, with years of experience in the dance profession, thereby ensuring young students get the best start in a disciplined, but caring environment. The course is held at the College in Perth, Subiaco every Saturday during school term from 9:00-10:30am (1 hour Classical Ballet / half-an-hour Creative Dance). Students will take part in an end of year production if they have commenced the course prior to Term 3. No audition required, students can join any time of the year.
