Strictly Dance’s Ballet Initiative is an exciting elite training program tailored to gifted dancers who have the facility and aspiration to pursue a career in the dance industry. The program works alongside schools in the area to ensure both their academic and dance requirements are met with both during and after school training opportunities available.

Our primary focus is classical ballet. Providing students with a strong secure classical technique is the basis, foundation and requirement for all forms of dance. Our faculty is an inspiring team of former professional dancers and teachers who are dedicated to providing our students with the highest calibre of technical and artistic training. 

Our mission is to be a centre of excellence and encourage our students to be the very best they can be within a nurturing and dedicated environment.

Strictly Dance is forever striving to create exquisitely trained students, both technically and artistically.

The program is divided into three levels to support dancers from age 8 all the way up to pre-professional level.


The Development Program
(8 – 11 years)

The Development Program has been designed to support the technical and artistic development of the budding classical dancer aged 8 – 11 who has the natural facility and love for classical ballet.

Pre-Professional Level 1 & Pre-Professional Level 2
(11 years +)

Level 1 and 2 students are able to take the advantage of more contact training hours with elite teachers in a nurturing and inspiring environment. Students have the wonderful opportunity to be mentored by some of the worlds leading classical and contemporary teachers, exclusive to Strictly Dance in the Redlands area.




As a parent we realise you have a choice between several dance studios that offer elite training programs. All courses are not the same and do not offer the same benefits for young students. We invite you to compare all of the options and opportunities to see what sets our elite training programs apart from the rest.
