The Royal Academy of Dance ballet classes


    The dance school brings brand-new animation Ballerina to life with a series of nationwide workshops starting in the New Year

    For budding dancers aged four to 13 years, the Royal Academy of Dance has partnered with new film Ballerina to bring a series of classes, inspiring children to get involved in dance through acting, storytelling and characterisation.

    The film, in cinemas now, tells the story of young orphan Felicie, who dreams of becoming a ballet dancer in Paris. With the help of her best friend Victor, Felicie must fight like she never has before, but learns nothing is impossible when it comes to achieving your dreams.


    The classes will be taught exclusively by RAD-registered teachers and will explore the themes of friendship and never giving up on your dreams. Boys and girls will also get to explore French culture through music and imagery, and will be introduced to classical ballet repertoire.

    Giving little ones the chance to get active, boost their confidence and make new friends, all the while promoting the important message of following your ambitions? We couldn’t think of a more positive start to the year.

    The workshops will run throughout January and February, with groups for children aged four to seven and eight to 13 years. For more details about your nearest class, visit
