Karen Blackburn Dance Academy

Jewel Ballet Programme

Our unique Jewel Ballet Programme has been developed with your child’s enjoyment, education and creativity at it’s very centre. Children will now be introduced to a structured framework and undertake an increased use of creative and musical tasks to further their artistic and musical skills. Through learning the fundamental basics of classical ballet and modern dance children can form a secure basis from which to progress further in any genre of dance.

Emerald Ballet and Modern (Reception/Year 1)

  • Classes will now include 30mins of ballet and 15mins of modern dance.
  • When ready to move up to the next jewel level we will present them with a certificate and a medal to recognise their achievement.

Ruby Ballet (Year 1) and Diamond Ballet (Year 2)

  • Lessons will now consist of classical ballet only and includes an introduction to PBT (Progressing Ballet Technique).  However, we encourage children to take a second or third class in Modern or Tap in order to broaden their skills and technique.
  • All students will be presented with a certificate and medal upon completion of their assessment to recognise their achievement. They will then move into RAD Grade 1 Ballet where they will be following both the training of the Ballet Conservatoire (Aus) and the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus and have the option of taking examinations.
