We believe that it is important for children to be able to express themselves through the medium of dance and to have the opportunity to build on their natural talent with strength, flexibility and technique.
Your child will be introduced to the Ballet Grades Syllabus and learn the foundation of Vaganova technique (a definitive method of classical ballet, known for its softness and fluidity and practised globally).
Your child will be enabled to develop their dancing technique and increase in strength, stamina, confidence and skill.
Your child will receive a certificate after completing the course by attending IDTA exams.
The IDTA is an Ofqual and Welsh Government recognised awarding organisation.

- Customers who are accompanied by children are responsible for supervising them at all times and should follow social distancing guidelines.

- If your child becomes unwell while at a setting, the provider will call you immediately to come and collect them. While your child is awaiting collection they will be kept separate from others by a distance of at least 2 metres, ideally in a well-ventilated room with appropriate adult supervision. When you collect your child you should take them straight home; do not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital. In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. Your child should then self-isolate for 7 days and you should arrange a test for them as soon as possible to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19). You can do this by visiting NHS.UK or contact NHS 119 via telephone if you do not have internet access. You and other fellow household members should self-isolate for 14 days. If your child tests negative, they can usually return to the setting and the fellow household members can end their self-isolation subject to confirmation from local health protection professionals. If your child tests negative but is unwell, they should not return to the setting until they are recovered. If your child tests positive, NHS‚ Test and Trace will speak directly to those that have been in contact with your child to offer advice. This advice may be that the rest of their class or group within the setting should be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days. Household members should always self-isolate at home.
Ruggeri Dance academy has allowed our daughter to learn ballet from a very young age. Angelo is a patient and kind teacher which has helped build our daughter's confidence. We also love the sense of community that we feel belonging to the RDA; it's a really lovely, safe and fun environment for the children to learn in.
Angelo's ballet classes a highlight of the weekend for Sophie. She loves classes and enjoys dancing with Angelo and her friends! Thanks, Angelo for giving our daughter amazing memories.
