Bellarinas

 St Andrews Parish Hall
Bellarinas was created in order to provide a different type of ballet class to those children who don't enjoy the more formal type of ballet class that is very typical. We feel passionately about this and have designed the class to incorporate much of the traditional ballet syllabus but it is mixed in with modern themes such as Frozen, Fairies and Princesses. We feel that young children should not be made to undertake exams and therefore don't provide such classes which work towards exams and certificates. Bellarinas is a non-competitive class and each child is special. Website
