GRADED EXAMINATIONS

POINTE

Pointe work is only considered for students participating in examinations. Core strength, sound classical technique and individual physical attributes are all contributing factors in approval for Pointe work. ALL students are required to have a pre pointe assessment with our in house physiotherapist Anne Wilby and will only be permitted on Pointe once the have been approved. Students may be given specific strengthening exercises as required prior to approval and some students may be recommended to NOT pursue pointe work.

ELITE CLASSICAL COACHING PROGRAM

Students excelling at classical ballet and demonstrating extraordinary commitment and work ethic may be invited to participate in our CAPA Elite Classical Coaching program. For more information please contact admin@capa.net.au

FOUNDATION BALLET CLASSES

At Creative Academy of Performing Arts we recognize that some students do not wish to participate in examinations and may wish to take ballet for recreational purposes only or to enhance their technique in another genre of dance. Our foundation ballet class covers basic classical techniques at a slower pace. Ideal for late starters or students not wanting to take ballet too seriously.
