“Ballet is a graceful disciplined art, but it is also Expression, Education, Encouragement and Enjoyment” – CSTD
Classical Ballet is a structured dance form which provides the basic foundation for many other kinds of dance. Using the CSTD Syllabi, the programme will improve posture, develop poise and coordination, and increase the attention span and musical awareness and appreciation of the student. Expressive quality of movement is also achieved as well as body toning and muscle development and above all enjoyment.
The Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing had its beginnings in 1933 and today, the Society is an authoritative examining body whose high standards are internationally respected. CSTD is one of the main Ballet syllabi in Singapore currently. There are 6 Grades of Children Ballet and every year an opportunity to sit the international ballet will be provided. After passing an exam the student will receive a certificate from the CSTD.
