Imperial Ballet

Imperial Ballet

The roots of Imperial Classical Ballet stem from the early days of the ISTD and the first written syllabus in 1913, which was based on the teaching of the French School from the Paris Opera. The syllabus has now evolved to promote the English classical style and address the changing needs of Ballet dancers today.

Jazz

Jazz

Jazz dance is a dynamic dance style that is low to the ground, broadly traveled with use of isolations providing power and dynamics. Jazz dance is currently seen in many forms of entertainment such as musical theatre productions, music videos and T.V. commercials.

Tap Dance

Tap has evolved as an American dance form, popularized throughout the world, with debate about its origins coming from African dance, Irish dance and/or clog dancing. The dancer uses their feet to strike the floor, beating out different rhythms, with dancers wearing tap shoes, which have small metal plates on the toe and heel to give the distinctive sound. Tap dance is a theatrical art form often seen on stage in musicals.

Modern Theatre

Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style, which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style.

Pointe

Classical ballerinas on stage go right up on their toes (check out Swan Lake) – this is called en pointe. You need special shoes to be able to do this. It is very good for strengthening legs, ankles and feet. From Grade 6 Ballet students are required to do this in their exam.

Fitness Technique

This is a fitness class that teaches students to improve core stability, weight placement and alignment, improve flexibility, increase muscle memory, attain longevity in dance and strengthen technique. Simple but effective exercises are done using instruments such as the fit ball and resistance bands of medium strength. Ballet students will particularly benefit from such training.

Mother & Toddler

Mothers, expect to be doing some workout along with your kids in this routine! Parents will engage in physical movements with their kids through sounds, actions and creative expressions. The class will help to improve your kid’s motor skills through natural development.

Flex & Stretch

Do you want to be able to kick high? Do the splits? Touch your toes with straight legs? This is a class for you! After a warm up, the teacher will lead gentle stretches to help improve flexibility of the body.

Men’s Class

The men’s class is an experimental class that starts with a fitness warm up and then leads in to some basic, repetitive dances which will help to build muscle memory, rhythm and coordination. One can expect to learn a bit of Modern & Tap. Open to men of any ages.

Adult Ballet

Mid-week classes for mothers who would like to get out of the house and expend their energies in to something different! You can expect to build posture, strengthen body muscles, and have fun while learning the techniques of ballet.

Floor Ballet for Special Needs

We consider dances for adults and kids with special needs too, as anyone able to move can do this lesson! It is a non weight-bearing class where the students will be taking a ballet class, either lying down or sitting on the floor, which helps improve the core. It will also benefit those who take ballet lessons as they can concentrate on certain areas on the floor without having to think about posture.

Music Classes

Bahrain Ballet Centre’s music department has been operational since the studio was first established and has trained students from amateur to professional levels. We offer two kinds of syllabi: Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and Trinity College of London.
