Primary Ballet 1
Ages 6-9. The program emphasizes creativity, proper ballet placement of arms and legs, musicality, and the concept of “telling a story” with our dancing. In the Primary Ballet 1, Students reach beyond the creative movement and fun of fairy tales into a more formal stage of their ballet education. Students build on the strength of their prior ballet experience and we focus on the balance between the technical and artistic elements of ballet.
Pre Pro Ballet 2 Variations
Ages 10-12. Students focus on the graceful movement of the entire body, as opposed to separate parts. Students establish the overall harmony of their dancing through learning how to place equal emphasis of the arms, body carriage, posture, and leg action. The main goals is to instill greater technical consistency in Students through reiterating strong understanding of the fundamental rules and theories of ballet. Additionally, Students learn to understand and pass the emotional message of dancing on a deeper and more complex level.
Pre Pro Ballet 3 Variations
Ages 13 & up is designed to accommodate students with a very strong interest in learning the art of ballet in its complexity. Ballet 3 levels meet twice a week, and once a student begins Pointe work in the ballet 3 program, it is highly recommended to enroll in an additional Pointe class. The ballet 3 program constantly challenges students to blend the harmony of strong technique with an artistic ballet quality.
Pre Pro Ballet 2 and 3 Pointe
Our Pointe classes are designed for our most technically proficient dancers who wish to take their ballet dancing to the next level. Because of the challenging nature of Pointe dancing, students must take at least 2 ballet classes a week and demonstrate a thorough understanding of proper body alignment and clean ballet technique in order to begin dancing en pointe. Our pointe classes are held separately from the student’s ballet class, and the students will work on developing their technique and alignment en pointe while learning classical ballet variations and movements that are specific to pointe.
