The Ballet School was established in 2008 specifically to service the Bellarine.

All classes are held in the fully equipped dance studio at The Potato Shed, Peninsula Road, and Drysdale.

Ballet classes are available for girls and boys from 5 ½  years of age. For the first time in 2015 the school will be offering Adult Ballet classes for those with or without prior ballet experience looking to discover the pleasure of dance in a relaxed environment – no tights or leotards required. Class numbers are limited to insure personalised tuition for all students.

Allegonda Deppe brings to The Ballet School over 30 years of teaching and performing experience. She is a Fellow of Cecchetti Ballet Australia, holds Cert.IV in Dance, and a former examiner.  While with The West Australian Ballet Company she performed in many stage and television productions.  She has travelled extensively throughout England, Europe and America and during that time attended ballet conferences and observed classes at the Royal Ballet School, The National Ballet in Amsterdam and Cecchetti conferences in London.  Always keen to increase her knowledge she regularly attends workshops and conferences to keep up with current trends.
