A Word from the Director


It is so very rewarding to see a student grow from being a tiny dancer, finding absolute joy in taking their first steps, to become an accomplished young adult carrying their years of ballet and dance training with them as they take their next steps in life. To dance is to understand artistic and musical form and to experience the enhanced psychological state that we call flow, whilst gaining understanding of the physical form in developing healthy and secure posture, strength, mobility and flexibility. 

Our team are at the heart of the Classical Ballet Canberra family; all are either graduates of the studio or teachers with a long history of working and training within our school. We have a treasured history of over 40 years of exceptional ballet and dance training in Canberra. We are delighted that you have chosen to join us and to trust us in teaching and nurturing your children.
