We are passionate about BALLET at Dance Stables!   


We run specially designed Ballet and Fitness classes for children and adults, with or without musical accompaniment.


During our classes, children and adults are taught our unique DS Ballet syllabus, created by Dance Stables Director, Cara Louise Horsley and Dance Stables Teacher, Despina Triantou.  All classes are delivered by our brilliant team of Dance Stables teachers.  There are opportunities throughout the year to be assessed via our Dance Stables Ballet Grading.



Dance Stables Ballet Grading and Syllabus


Dance Stables Ballet Grading aims to support the DS Academy syllabus & learning, while providing a grading scheme where candidates can progress & develop their Dance understanding & skill. We have introduced our grading to classes to show children's development and understanding of their Balllet learning, with a focus on self-expression and confidence in performing.


You will progress through a ‘rainbow’ of DS Horseshoe grades in colour order, & are open to all ages.


Dance Stables grades are assessed by DS official examiners and guest assessors, after sufficient class time & candidate development.  Everyone who passes their Horseshoe grade will receive an official DS certificate and rosette.  To be entered into an assessment, you must be taught by a Dance Stables teacher.  


Candidates can be assessed with or without music.  Dance Stables uniform must be worn in all DS classes and assessment days.  Get in touch for information on examination requirements and fees.


Our next DS Ballet Grading Assessment Day is on - Sunday 31st March 2019

Get in touch to book your child’s place at our next Assessment Day.  

Please note:

DS Kids Academy Islington, Wood Green, Grange Park and Muswell Hill and St Georges Primary school assessments will run - from 9.00am until 3.00pm at our Wood Green location.


Why no music?


Our bespoke Dance Stables Ballet classes meet a variety of interests and needs, and can be taught with or without music.  The ‘no music’ option are tailored to meet the needs of diverse and religious communities, where children and adults may not have the opportunities to engage in this type of activity before. The classes are great exercise, and an opportunity to develop motor skills, coordination and posture.  Fun, friendly and progressive, our Ballet and fitness classes will be filled with games, exercises and sequences.  

We also provide a specially designed, long sleeved DS uniform which can be worn at our classes.
