PRE-BALLET PROGRAM
KINDER classes for 3*-5 year-olds is a fun way to foster the natural inclination for movement while developing control, coordination, motor skills, creativity and expressiveness.  Students also enhance their listening, cooperation and social skills in a nurturing environment while helping them understand their bodies and how they relate to space.  (*NOTE:  3-yr-olds must be turning 4 by Dec 31)

PRIMARY classes for 5-7 year olds is designed to develop a greater sense of confidence and self-esteem within an environment that encourages expressiveness and joy of movement.  Emphasis is placed on introduction of the basic positions with a heightened awareness of movement and a strong focus on the discipline required of Formal ballet classes.  Students develop coordination and musicality while learning the foundations of ballet vocabulary and proper terminology.

FORMAL BALLET PROGRAM
ELEMENTARY ​(B-I and B-II) division is for students who exhibit strong physical and mental capabilities to master the basics.  Training becomes more exacting with careful attention to the detailed positions of the body, head, feet and hands.  Focus is on correct technique; and pointe work may be introduced to select Ballet-II students after careful evaluation.

INTERMEDIATE (B-III) and ADVANCED (B-IV) students move through a structured, progressive method based on the Russian Vaganova syllabus proven by years of professional experience.  Students are taught in a highly focused atmosphere with careful regard for individual potential and ability.  Sound technical training develops a personal appreciation for ballet and prepares aspiring dancers for professional work, teaching, college programs or other actvities in which confidence and self-discipline are advantageous.  

POINTE work is an extension of more advanced ballet training, NOT a separate discipline.  Once correct placement and strength are established, the recommendation to start pointe is made only by our qualified teachers.  Students are required to have a minimum of two years of two days a week in the Formal Ballet Program to be considered ready for pointe.
