Elite Classical Program for Classical Ballet Training

Geelong Ballet Centre, as Geelong’s longest running classical ballet school, proudly offers part time extension classes in classical ballet to the highest standard.

The local part time program is designed to work around school hours in order to nurture well being and keep students close to family. We endeavour to bring the best teachers to the students’ doorstep to ensure excellence in local study.

The Program equips those with pursuits for a career in dance with thorough vocationally geared classical training, including Russian technique. In addition to ongoing examination, conditioning, pointe, character and repertoire training, students are provided with opportunities to excel in specialised elite classial classes and to undertake private coaching. Intake into the program is small to ensure students receive excellent teacher interaction.
