Ballet - All Levels, All Ages

Ballet for All
Ballet is a classical dance form that is characterized by grace and precision of movements. Classical ballet also uses elaborate gestures, steps, and poses. Our ballet department has a progressive program of classical ballet study, which ranges from the age of 5 to 95

Our program draws upon the traditional methods, yet includes modern elements that meet the diversity of demands in current ballet trends. Each consecutive year, the number of technique classes increase as the skill and the ability of the student progresses. Classical variations, Pointe, Partnering, and Pilates are integrated into the program according to the dancer's level and age. Guest artists are also incorporated into the ballet curriculum to give the dancers the most of their ballet training.

Dress Code
Dancers must wear their hair in a bun and with their hair out of their face.  All Ballet dancers are required to wear a black leotard and pink tights.  Pink Ballet slippers are required for all dancers.

Students with a minimum of six months in a Pre-Ballet I class, with the age of 6 to 10 take the next big leap toward serious ballet training.  Classroom etiquette demands a more structured tone, yet the enviroment encourages love for this fundamental dance form.  Detailed explanations of proper stretching, warm up, primary positions, port de bras, fundamental movements across the floor and classroom etiquette are taught to prepare a dancer for proper training in Ballet.
