Classical ballet is the traditional artform of dance that has been practiced since the 16th Century, and continues today, characterised by turned out legs and pointed feet. It is widely regarded as the best basis for all dance training and technique. RWSOD offers ballet classes from Pre-School to Advanced students, and utilises Australian Dance Vision’s syllabus, amongst others.
Australian Dance Vision is a not for profit, member based Australian dance society, that was created by taking the wealth of knowledge of so many teachers, dancers, trainers across so many backgrounds and dance organisations, and compiled these into an all-Australian dance syllabus that is focussed on the education of the whole dancer. It has become one of the premier dance syllabus providers in Australia.
Examinations are offered (recommended but not compulsory) when students are deemed ready at each level of training, and annual performances and opportunities to compete are also offered.
