Lisayne Ballet School was established in 1981 by our founder, Lisa Hollinshead, to facilitate the training of boys and girls in the art of Classical ballet.
Our mission is to create treasured memories of achievement and performance, whilst encouraging an appreciation of music and dance that will last into adulthood.
Along their dance journey we hope our pupils gain confidence, good deportment, and a sense of achievement through performance and the different Exam structures we have in place.
Enjoyment is top of our list of priorities and all our staff aim to achieve this in a friendly, happy, caring environment, for all pupils regardless of natural ability.
Teaches ballet steps in imaginative sequences using Storytelling & Nursery Rhymes. Props such as Magic wands, feathers, Flags & percussion instruments are all part of the learning experience.
This is a more structured class that has set exercises building towards the RAD Pre Primary Class Award (optional exam). There is still a lot of imaginative work and use of Props.
Pupils are taught to demonstrate an understanding of technique and an awareness of musicality & performance in basic movement sequences and dances. Grades 1 & 2 also cover Character dance & Free Movement.
