BALLET:

Tiny Tots Creative Movement (Ages 2 to 4)  Tiny Tots learn basic steps and terminology in ballet. Creative movement includes simple isolations, turns, jumps, and leaps. The use of fun, age appropriate music engages the young dancers’ minds and bodies. The use of props such as maracas, stuffed animals, flowers, or scarves makes the end of class the most fun! Classes introduce dance positions, terminology and skills. They are a great stepping stone to Beginning Level dance classes in the future.


Creative Dance (Ages 3 to 5) Classes introduce students to the fundamentals of dance. We focus on motor skill development by performing exercises specifically designed to improve strength, balance, and coordination. Students are taught the basic principles of dance such as positions, shapes, pathways, and levels. In addition, they will improve body awareness and learn to follow directions, take turns, count and distinguish between colors, body parts, and their right and left sides.


Pre-Ballet (Ages 4.5 to 6) Pre-Ballet is designed to encourage creative expression while introducing more structured ballet exercises that improve muscular strength, balance, and coordination. Students are taught the basic ballet positions, exercises at the barre, and exercises in center. They will are taught to count music, make shapes, identify pathways, and create their own dances. We also continue to focus on body awareness, following directions, taking turns, counting and distinguishing between colors, body parts, and their right and left sides.


Ballet, Modern & Lyrical

Level One Ballet (Ages 5-7, 7-10,  10+) Level One Ballet is an introductory level class follows the traditional Ballet class structure starting with exercises at the barre such as plies, tendus, degages, rond de jambes, and battements followed by practice in center and across the floor. Students learn proper form and execution as they learn to balance and perform pirouettes, traveling steps, small jumps, and leaps.


Level Two Ballet (Ages 7-10, 11+ ) Level Two Ballet is a continuation of Ballet I. Students should have at least 2 years of experience and be able to perform exercises at the barre such as plies, tendus, degages, rond de jambes, and battements. Students are challenged to perform more difficult exercises as they continue to practice steps in center and across the floor. Students should understand proper form and execution so that they are able to improve their balance, pirouettes, traveling steps, small jumps, and leaps.


Level Three Ballet (Ages 11-17 and Adult) Level III Advanced Ballet is a continuation of Intermediate Ballet. Students should have at least 4 years of dance experience with admission requiring instructor permission. Exercises at the barre focus on improving turnout, strength, endurance, speed, and musicality. Students are challenged to perform more difficult exercises as they continue to practice steps in center and across the floor. Students should understand proper form and execution so that they are able to balance and perform pirouettes en pointe. We continue to focus on improving technique and artistry while learning more challenging adagio, petite allegro, and grande allegro combinations.


Pointe Class: (Ages 11 and up, Adult) (Instructor permission required) Point class introduces students to the art of dancing en pointe. Students should have 4 years of consistent ballet training and be fitted for shoes by a dance professional who can evaluate the student’s needs based on their particular feet with consideration given to their turn-out and the strength and flexibility of their arches and ankles. Class will focus on exercises at the barre to increase strength and improve alignment, followed by exercises in center to practice rising to full pointe and performing balances, pirouettes, and traveling steps.
