Camberwell District Ballet

Teaching children to dance for over 40 years

Introduction

Camberwell District Ballet is one of the only schools in Australia, which teaches Russian Classical Ballet, as taught in the Russian Schools.

The Russian School of classical ballet training is slow and careful, working on the body to become an instrument to dance with. The training is geared to a gentle and gradual – one may say natural development which, with the which unfolding of time and the growth of the student cultivates an aura of simple eloquence and they grow up without strain or injury; learning to wear their technical prowess as a graceful garment.

Camberwell District Ballet School serves as the introductory school to the esteemed Professional Russian Choreographic Academy (RCA).
