Regency Ballet School for Boys provides non-syllabus classes that promote and encourage the enjoyment of dance as a form of physical exercise. These classes also aim to develop an appreciation of music through dancing to various musical styles and rhythmic patterns. Through learning dance combinations designed to challenge the student, these classes develop invaluable skills including, creativity, musicality, and presentation skills which all helps students to become really versatile. Along with the technical steps students also work on their performance skills around the choreography that is being created to develop the dancer’s appreciation of movement to music.
Students may also like to take a graded syllabus class. Regency Ballet School for Boys also provide classes that follow the BBOdance graded syllabus devised as a safe and developmental programme of study that motivate students by providing a series of clearly defined goals. Focusing on technique, artistry and performance skills, studying the graded syllabus is beneficial as they provide a means of measuring the acquisition of technical, musical and dance performance skill. Students demonstrate their understanding of terminology through performing combinations with the correct use of steps and technique.
Both type of class will provide a strong foundation for any ballet student beginning their dance journey.

As a general rule, at Regency Ballet School for Boys dancers are placed in class according to ability. Progression and understanding differs with each student and will vary according to an individual’s attendance, the number of classes they attend, the amount of practice they commit to outside of class, their attitude and their physical development.
We want students regardless of where they are in their learning to be motivated and have a positive sense of self-belief. We understand that students enjoy attending classes with their friends, however any advancement made through the grades must be based according to each student’s progress, their comprehension of the techniques learned and their ability to perform the techniques correctly
