Primary And Pre Primary – 5 To 6 years

Pre – Primary and Primary further extends the students skills in both their technical ability and artistry. Students now learn to put a combination of steps together and set exercises are taught that are required to be remembered and practised for the next class. This is the Classical Ballet version of introducing Homework.

 Hair Etiquette – All Levels

Classical ballet dancers have always been proud of their perfect grooming – it is and always will be a part of who they are.

The NTBS prides itself in being a school that clearly teaches right and wrong in the world of Ballet.

The right way, the only way, is for all girls to wear their hair in a bun (with a hairnet) and all hair off their face for every class and rehearsal. The uniform includes a headband.

The NTBS recognises that due to coming straight from school – with maybe dad, a nanny or a grandparent the hair regulations cannot always be adhered to – if this is the case the class teacher will be more than happy to do your child’s hair as long as appropriate hair equipment is provided:–

Strong Elastic Band – Strong Hair Pins – Hairnet – Hairspray – Brush
