This title encompasses one of our main values of our dancers finding and continuing their inner grace not just in their dancing, but within their emotional self and journey through life. Students will have the same dance genres as the previous level consisting of Classical Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Acrobatics and Showtime (musical theatre), Contemporary/Lyrical classes (must study a technique class of Ballet and/or Jazz class in order to meet the technical requirements of this genre).
Our more serious Ballet students will be training full-steam ahead in our Elite stream at this level will still be undertaking two ballet classes per week - their general Ballet class and their Grade 2 Cecchetti exam class, as a prerequisite to reaching the correct level for their Ballet exam come July/ August. An added bonus we encourage students to seek is the participation of the Grade 3 Ballet Exam class too (without sitting the exam, at NO EXTRA COST), in order to ensure they’re training at the highest level which will see fast-tracked results across all genres.
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR GRACE LEVEL
Assuming a student has sat their Grade 1 Ballet exam in the POISE level, are continuing with their Grade 2 Ballet exam in the GRACE level, and have reached the required standard and maturity within their classes, they will be invited to join our ELITE COMPETITION TEAM in our 8 & under level.
Our Elite Competition Team students will train in an extra 60 min class per week as they learn 3 routines which will be performed at two main competitions for the year. Two of these routines will then be showcased at our end of year performance in December. Along with all students within our GRACE level being celebrated at our presentation evening in December as they graduate into our next ELEGANCE level and are awarded their certificate and medal, our Elite Competition Team and Ballet Exam students will also be acknowledged with their commitment to these extra classes and associated accomplishments.
Students in our GRACE level will have increased opportunities available to them as the year progresses with access to in-house student’s own Choreography Competition, access to our Summer Intensive with industry-renowned teachers in January, all school-related social events, along with extra-curricular activities such as prestigious awards days run by Cecchetti Ballet Australia.
**Please note an entry-level beginner student who is age 8 may need to enter the previous ASPIRE level before commencing the POISE & GRACE levels to learn the fundamentals of basic technique first, depending on the class/es selected.
