Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing - Classical Ballet
Ballet is the basis for all other genres of dance and helps you to ready yourself for other types of dancing such as contemporary, jazz, even hip-hop.
It helps develop strength, posture, grace, co-ordination, muscle tone, technique and musical awareness.
Ballet at SAA is under the ISTD syllabus. The roots of Imperial Classical Ballet stem from the early days of the ISTD and the first written syllabus in 1913 which was based on the teaching of the French School from the Paris Opéra. The syllabus has now evolved to promote the English classical style and address the changing needs of Ballet dancers today.
