CLASSICAL BALLET

Classes are grouped by grade level and experience

    • PRE-BALLET (Pre-K thru 1st grade)

This class introduces children to the basic principles, steps and positions in ballet. Students develop coordination, imagination and listening skills, learning classical ballet through creative ballet movements, rhythmic exercises and imaginative dances.  Pre-K must be 5 by Nov 1

Pre-ballet classes

    • BALLET LEVELS I, II and III

Students begin with basic barre work and center floor combinations that increase with difficulty as they advance. Correct body placement, turnout, and technique are emphasized. Fun dances and activities are an important part of our classes.

Beginning Ballet Class

    • INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED

Pre-Pointe and Pointe students continue learning new steps, dance vocabulary, and technique to strengthen the mind and the body for advanced dancing. Stage presence becomes an additional focus, as dancers have increasingly more challenging performance roles. Being more serious about their ballet, these students now take class twice a week or more.

* Dancers who are en pointe can also join Young Dancers Company and participate in an additional two hour class / rehearsal every week.
