Classes

The classes are divided into six levels in which a specific syllabus is taught starting at age 3.  The program will provide a learning experience that will challenge and enhance the mind & body of any child. Enrollment will close when participation reaches the maximum class size per level.  Potential for flexibility of available class levels is dependent upon interest and more classes may be added as needed.   Parent Observation classes will be held during the course of the school year.  A free trial class and/or “bring a friend” can be arranged by appointment.


Open Classes are designed for the student who may wish to improve their ballet technique while still attending their regular dance school.

 

Creative Dance -   for the 4-5 year old.  At this level, students will continue the development of their musicality, recognizing ballet stories, pantomimes, introduction to basic ballet steps and a continuation of following commands.  This development through repetition and sequencing is a tremendous advantage in preparation for Kindergarten.


Beginner Ballet -   for the 5-7 year old.  At this level, the student will truly begin their work at the Barre and at Center.   The structure of the class will provide body conditioning and explanation of how to work muscles properly to avoid future injuries.


Advanced Beginner 
– for the 8-10 year old.  At this level there is a continuation of the work at the Barre and Center, introduction to the classical repertoire and body conditioning.   Jazz and Modern classes will be added to the curriculum at this stage.


Intermediate I & II - for the 10-14 year old.  At this level there is more acceleration in the syllabus.  Intermediate I  is for Pre-Pointe work and II  is  for those students that are on pointe in addition to Classical Repertoire, Jazz, Modern, Character  and Body Conditioning.


Advanced - for ages 14 and up.  The training at this level is accelerated and the students will be able to take a full class on pointe, and the repertoire is combined with dance history.  Partnering classes are introduced and they will continue training in Jazz, Modern, Character and Ballroom Dance as well as Body Conditioning.


Classes for Boys – This class is specific to develop body strength, flexibility, coordination and jumps in any level of training. Depending upon interest, this class time can be costume designed to accommodate individual coaching.


Children's Program -   for the 2 1/2-4 year old.    The toddlers will be introduced to dance with fun music, stretches, and activities that will develop self-control, following directions, and much more.
