Grace & Poise Academy is the first Ballet School to offer a unique Ballet To Poetry Syllabus. All poetry and choreographic material is written by our Director to ensure that the poetry and movements work in harmony together. The use of imagery, dynamics, pace and tone of the spoken word poetry helps guide and inform the movements so that the movements communicate what is being explored in the poetry.
Our poems explore Islamic Values and Celebrate the creation of Allah سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَى
The syllabus is founded upon child developmental theory, created by trained highly qualified professionals and is developed specifically for the child at each stage of their learning.
Our syllabus aids student in the following areas of development:
Islam is at the root of everything we do, we strive to support the formation of a positive Islamic identity by encouraging our students to always present themselves with excellence of character. Our students are encouraged to show patience, kindness, respect and integrity and we emphasise and explore positive messages within all our work to help our students to obtain this.
As our students progress through the Academy their qualifications will be recognised and accredited. This will aid in their applications for Schools and Universities.
Through our examination and awards we aim to build a host of good traits and transferable skills in our students.
Our students participate in ballet exams annually and InshaAllah our higher level work will allow students to gain UCAS points for university. This means that Ballet with G&P should support each student to better their applications for schools and universities. Most students continue Ballet for long life wellbeing however, should our students wish to pursue ballet as a career, we will provide training and graduate programmes for them to train as Ballet Teachers.
This will enable them to join our Ballet Teaching Faculty and teach our Ballet to Poetry Syllabus.
We feel passionately about our work expanding and passing on for the benefit of future generations.
