Ballet Academy Years 1-13
St Andrew’s College has established a unique and comprehensive Ballet programme, encompassing the entire school from the Pre-school to Year 13.
Integrated within the school day, it offers our students a seamless transition from academic class to Ballet studio – with
specialised tuition focused on classical technique, musicality, and the joy of performance.
Dancers take yearly exams, enjoy annual productions, and have opportunities to explore other dance genres such as jazz, lyrical, national character, and contemporary.
Course costs: To be advised.

Secondary Level Courses
To provide for the needs of today’s current dancer, our Secondary School programmes offer quality balletic training plus choreographic
experiences across all core dance styles.
Quality teaching, examination accomplishments plus experiences with renowned guest tutors, excellent performance opportunities, and NCEA credits, all combine to provide a true robustness and rigour to the program.
Ballet and Dance Studies
In Years 9 and 10 we offer ‘Ballet and Dance Studies’ as a subject option.
Three classes per week provide an ideal opportunity for dedicated dancers to train and perform within their school day, and is a stepping stone into the ‘Company.’
The Ballet Company
In Years 11–13 we offer an elite co-curricular ‘Company’ (4+ hours/week). ‘Company’ students may take their Advanced Examination and gain qualification ‘letters’ (A.NZAMD), plus take the highest level exam ‘Solo Performance’.
