About
Founded in 1979, the St. Lucia School Of Ballet & Modern Dance is the leading teaching facility for the training in Classical Ballet, Modern Theatre Dance and Tap.

Classical Ballet classes are based on the examination syllabus of the Royal Academy of Dance (U.K.), the largest examining body and training body for Classical Ballet in the world. For Modern Theatre Dance and Tap, we follow the syllabus of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (U.K.), another internationally recognised institution.

Programs for Students
Classes are geared to develop the technical ability required in Classical Ballet, Modern Theatre Dance and Tap. We also aim to stimulate self-discipline, muscle co-ordination, rhythm, musicality and a sense of performance.

Whether you are a student desiring to become a performer or teacher, male or female, there is a class for you! The St. Lucia of Ballet & Modern Dance provides personalised attention to students so that they can harness their potential to excel at dance to tertiary level, and to appreciate the performing arts.

Fees
The dance school year round concurrently with the academic school year and thus is divided into three terms. Dance fees cover a tem's tuition and are payable in advance. Fees are dependent on the level of study and the frequency of classes.

Uniforms:
Due to the standards of excellence and discipline we aim to engender and maintain, all students are required to attend classes in the regulation uniform stipulated for the grade.

Examinations:
Dance is highly competitive. Annually, students are eligible for international assessment, which can assist both parent and student to monitor their progress.

Classical Ballet and Modern Dance examinations are held locally with examiners sent from the Royal Academy of Dancing and Imperial Society of Teachers or Dancing to asses the students.

Examination results are internationally recognized. They can be assets to enhance entry requirements for further study as an indication of formal training in the arts; discipline and appreciation for excellence!

Our Mission
To train the young at heart to unleash the passion and creativity of dance with the focus of becoming a recognized center of excellence and a regional hub for the performing arts.

Presentations and awards are given annually. Major school productions are performed every 2 years.
