Pre Primary Ballet (5-6 years) is the first level of the formal Royal Academy of Dance classical ballet levels. Aimed at Kindergarten children (usually 5 year olds), children start their classical technique with coordination, proprioception, imaginative sequences, skipping, hopping, balancing, travelling across the room in various formations, establishing correct postural behaviours and strength and control of muscles and muscle groups.
Primary Ballet (6-7 Years) the second level of Royal Academy of Dance ballet. Aimed at children who are 6-7 years old and who are at big school attending Grade 1. Children continue developing the skills they have learnt in Pre Primary, only they will begin working on alternate sides of the body, in different levels, in more complex combinations and patterns, with partners and in groups as well as on their own all the while still engaging in content that is musical, imaginative and creative. This is the first level at which examinations can be taken in ballet.
