Newcastle's Elite Ballet School. NBT offers a wide range of ballet classes for tiny tots, beginners to pre-professionals and adults.
Focusing on Classical Ballet, NBT is proud to be the first school in NSW to introduce the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet Syllabus.
The ACB has proven to be a very successful syllabus in Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and throughout the Philippines and Asia. Devised by Christine Walsh, AM, and based on Russian training methods, the syllabus combines the use of open format classes to develop fast thinking dancers, and carefully thought out set exercises. The results are dancers with a strong classical technique from a young age, able to grow and adapt quickly.
Principals Kristy and Rider chose the ACB Syllabus over other options after teaching students raised in this syllabus, while living on the Gold Coast in 2011. Seeing the quality of dancers it was producing, and the preparation it provides advanced students for a life in the professional dance world, the ACB was a clear and easy choice.
Newcastle has historically been fertile ground for ballet talent in Australia. With the ACB, NBT aims to honour that legacy while continuing to push forward to even greater levels.
In addition to our ACB Syllabus and Open Ballet classes, we also offer Boys Coaching, Pas de Deux, Contemporary, Jazz, Stretch / Conditioning, Tiny Tots Ballet & Jazz,
Adult Ballet & Stretch & Conditioning classes and our Full Time Program for dancers
