Portledge School offers a full syllabus of ballet classes each day after school led by Miss Kathleen Moore, formerly of the Russian Ballet School. Classes are age and ability leveled ranging from Creative Movement for our youngest participants through Ballet IV which encompasses pointe and character.
Miss Moore is trained in the Vaganova Syllabus which is a world-renowned method of teaching and training dancers. The method is designed to work the body as a whole, with the total involvement of the body in every movement, and equal attention paid to the upper body as well as the legs and feet. Vaganova believed that this approach increases consciousness of the body, thus creating a harmony of movement and greater expressive range.
