Beginning Ballet

The school offers a Beginners Ballet program designed according to age and ability for those age six and over. These programs will gradually introduce the students to the enjoyment of training the body as a total instrument, developing strength, flexibility, and movement control as they progress through the various levels.

Intermediate Ballet

An Intermediate Ballet course is offered to students reaching a higher level of competence. Emphasis in style, expression and strengthening of the ballet technique is particularly stressed.

Advanced Ballet / Pointe

A more advanced program is offered for those students wishing to pursue a professional career or for those who simply want to dedicate more time and effort to their training with advanced technique.

Pre-Point / Pointe

Students with a minumum of 4 years consistent ballet training and who have reached the age of 10 may qualify to begin an additional class in preparation for pointe work. In addition to these requirements, it will be the prerogative of the instructor to decide when the student has the strength, balance, and body control to qualify for a Preparation Pointe or Pointe class

Contemporary Styles

Classes are offered for intermediate to advanced students in lyrical dance and contemporary dance with various forms of modern influence included. Students develop a greater freedom of expression by expanding on the classical ballet training in a more contemporary fashion.
