Services offered: Annual Examinations, Bi- Annual Showcases, Festivals / Eisteddfods, Medal Performance Awards.

Ballet classes (3 yrs - adult)

Ballet is taught by Fiona Brown (35 years’ experience) and follows the Syllabus of the Imperial Society’s Cecchetti Faculty which is Internationally recognised.

Modern dance classes (3yrs -adult)

Modern follows the syllabus of the Theatre Dance Association and is taught by Fiona Brown.

Contemporary dance classes (12 yrs - adult)

Contemporary is taught by Dancer / Choreographer John Tsunke.
In 2016 we were most excited to announce that dancer and choreographer John Tsunke joined the staff, teaching contemporary dance. With several years of experience on the professional stage and several well received choreographic works to his name, John is an excellent addition to our stable.

Progressing Ballet Technique:Ballet based core exercises

It has long been recognised that our lifestyles no longer allow children to develop the core strength needed to excel in sports and dance, and many children suffer from low muscle tone which affects many aspects of their schooling. This is not the fault of the parents, but rather of the problem of no longer being able to allow children to ride their bicycles freely, or just run off to a friend’s house, as past generations did. As a result, Fiona has introduced a programme of ballet based core exercises using Pilates ball strength and training muscle memory, called Ballet Ball, based on programmes developed in Australia and the United States.

Fiona also has vast experience in teaching boys and recommends that boys with serious ambition on the sports field do Ballet as a supplement to their sports training.

Fiona believes in providing Fun within a disciplined environment. Dancers have achieved excellent examination results, qualified for the East Rand Dance Encore Awards, the Gauteng Cecchetti awards (including several winners and runners up) and have performed well in Eisteddfods. Several Ilanga dancers are now following professional careers both locally and internationally.

As dancers progress they are also introduced to Jazz, Contemporary and national / folk dance.
