    Hello

    My daughter will be 2 in July and already loves dancing. We show her some moves and she tries anything. I’d like to know how old she needs to be to start ballet classes please?
    Also, my son is 4 and has told us he would like to try dancing. I’d like to see if he likes ballet or something else, could you guide me in this area please? He has seen ballet dancing and thinks it’s very beautiful.

    Please also include some information regarding your adult classes, as I haven’t done ballet since primary school, but have always loved it.

    Thank you 🙂

      I suggest you wait until next year for your daughter, as they do a lot better when they are three. Your son is welcome to come and try a tiny tots class. You can see our timetable on this website, depending if you are from Port Elizabeth or Jeffreys Bay. In Port Elizabeth we have an adult beginners class on a Tuesday at 17H15 which you are welcome to come and try out.

    HI, my daughter is 14 and would like to start with ballet classes. She did ballet when she was 5 up to 7yrs. Would that be possible or is she to old now?

      I would suggest she either come and try the adult beginners class on a Saturday or the Grade 3 Ballet. I don’t think you are ever too old to learn.

      Hi, personally I find they are usually too young at five for hip hop, but there are exceptions to the rule. I would suggest you bring him to try one of the beginner classes and you can take it from there.
