WELCOME TO KIM BAKER BALLET ACADEMY

We are a dedicated dance training institution for all children as well as those who show exceptional talent and potential to reach the highest levels of international ballet performance. Established in 1990, The Academy is one of only a few schools to offer a specialist after school and professional full time program for talented dancers and budding dance teachers in Perth. We employ the famous Vaganova Russian syllabus - used in professional ballet schools throughout the world. The Academy also offers a Standard Course, Tiny Tots and Junior Ballet. The standard course is designed for students who love the joy of dance and they can attend as many classes as they wish. The contemporary classes are suitable for children from 11 years of age and are perfect for all levels and also highly recommended for ATAR dance students.
