Classes develop the key skills required in Ballet and also include the opportunity to dance ‘The Butterfly Adventures’ – a series of magical rhyming picture books written by Catherine and adapted for each age group.
Catherine Loveless (BA Hons, ARAD, PDTD) trained at the Royal Ballet School and performed professionally with Dusseldorf Ballet and the English National Ballet.
Catherine graduated with a Distinction from the Professional Dancers Teaching Diploma at the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) and holds Registered Teaching Status. She established a small ballet school in Beijing and has also taught at The Ballet School, Notting Hill.
Wanting to combine her love of writing children’s stories with her passion for teaching, Butterfly Ballet was born.
These weekly classes currently held in Barnes, Putney, Clapham Junction and Wimbledon introduce your child to ballet training in an imaginative and creative way. Classes develop the key skills required in Ballet and also include the opportunity to dance ‘The Butterfly Adventures’ – a series of magical rhyming picture books written by Catherine and adapted for each age group.
For children over the age of 5, the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus is taught and children can prepare for and enter examinations from Pre-Primary level through to Grade 8.
Participation in local events including the Barnes Fair is also encouraged. This offers the opportunity for confidence to grow and to experience the excitement of performing in front of an audience.
