Sudbury School of Dance class options

Classical ballet in the Russian style, modern based on Martha Graham's work and jazz with the ADAPT syllabus are offered at Sudbury School of Dance for dancers ages three through adult.  


What we offer

Sudbury School of Dance offers classes in ballet, jazz and modern. Dancers ages 3 to adult enjoy small class sizes and excellent instruction. For over 30 years we have been teaching classes that reflect excellence and quality for all students.  Dancers of all ages and abilities are challenged to do their best and the art and discipline of dance are used to help students succeed - not just in the studio, but in their future pursuits as well.



Pre-dance and Primary (ages 3 to 5 years)

Predance classes at Sudbury School of Dance are designed to develop basic motor skills, musicality and expressive ability in an atmosphere of creativity, leading to the introduction of ballet technique.


Ballet (ages 6 to 18 years)

Junior ballet classes

Sudbury School of Dance follows the first five levels of the Russian Style Ballet (Vaganova) syllabus in junior classes.  A yearly exam is available to students at the discretion of the teacher.


Intermediate ballet classes

The next four levels of Russian Style Ballet are covered in intermediate classes at the studio.  Students at this level are encouraged to attend ballet classes twice a week if they wish to take exams.


Senior ballet classes

Work from the pre-elementary, elementary, intermediate and advanced syllabus are introduced in senior classes.  At this level students must take a minimum of two ballet classes a week if they wish to take an exam.



Classes are available to intermediate and senior level ballet students at the discretion of the teacher.


Jazz (ages 6 to 18 years)

At Sudbury School of Dance jazz classes are offered to students ages 6 and over.  Contemporary jazz technique is taught throughout the program.


Modern (ages 8 to 18 years)

Modern dance classes are taught based on the Martha Graham technique.  Modern dance is an art form which allows the dancer to express their feelings and ideas about themselves and the world around them.


Adult classes

The studio offers adult classes in ballet and modern.  Advanced and returning students can take classes in both disciplines, while a beginner class is offered for those who are just starting out with ballet.
