Our popular Spring and Summer Courses provide an opportunity for you to do just this. The course is aimed at students aged 12-16 with a minimum of RAD Intermediate Foundation or alternative equivalent.
Ballet is at the core of the course and you will be grouped by age and ability. You will also take classes in Pointe (where appropriate), Contemporary and Body Conditioning, all taught by Central's outstanding teachers.
