Every other year, students of The Dublin Ballet Academy will take part in our School Show. This is a fantastic opportunity for students to perform on stage in beautiful costumes and a great chance for family and friends to come and see what they have been learning in class.

These shows are not compulsory, however, we do encourage all students to take part as there is always great excitement surrounding show time and we don't want any student to feel left out.

Our last show was held in Draiocht Theatre, Blanchardstown on Sunday 18th June 2017. It was a huge success with wonderful comments coming in from parents and families in the audience. Students performed in either the matinee or evening performance with senior students dancing in both. We had a spectacular backdrop, amazing costumes, professional sound and lighting, a photographer, two videographers and even a balloon drop for the finale! It was a wonderful day and to say we were proud of all our students is an understatement. We had 150 dancers in all take part, and everyone of them danced beautifully on stage and had a truly memorable experience.

The next Academy show will be in 2019.

Our Classes

We spend the first portion of class warming up our bodies safely to prevent injury. As the students get older and gain experience, we expect them to do this on their own before class starts.

We then move to the barre. The ballet barre steadily builds strength and teaches the correct body placement for ballet dancers. It is a crucial part of training and challenges your flexibility, strength, balance and precision. The barre is where you can begin to develop the right muscles and co-ordination, which is very specific for ballet.
