JUNIOR EXTENSION CLASSICAL BALLET PROGRAMME (JEPS)
JUNIOR & SENIOR FULL OR PART TIME VOCATIONAL CLASSICAL BALLET PROGRAMME
JEPS is by audition only and is designed for talented young dancers who are considering a career in dance or dance related jobs. Teaching is based on the foundations of the Vaganova System and these young dancers experience, first hand, the training needed to become a dancer. Classes take place weekly before school.
These programmes are by audition only and places are limited. Students must desire a career in or around classical and contemporary dance, and possess the physical and mental attributes necessary for such a career. Training includes: Master Classes, weekly Pas de Deux classes, Daily Pointe work, Pilates, Progressive Techniques, Repertoire, Stretching & Conditioning, One-on-One sessions, Vaganova style as well as Bournonville and Balachine styles are taught. Auditions, Bursaries, Scholarships, and competition work is meticulously planned and prepared. Former students taught by Mr. Leader & Miss Deborah are now placed in ballet companies world wide, former Dance Centre students have successfully transferred to the Australian Ballet School, and several junior students are in The Australian Ballet School Interstate Programme.
