Class ages 3-4
This is a beginner ballet class for kids ages 9-11. Have you always wanted to try ballet but didn’t want to take class with 6 year olds? This class is designed for the beginner dancer with little to no experience. Learn the basic positions; work at the ballet barre and in center on steps and combinations to get you on track for our full time classes.
Students are introduced to working at the ballet barre and begin the memorization of ballet vocabulary and combinations. The barre is where dancers begin class. This teaches technique, balance and muscle memory. Students begin to learn how a ballet class is configured and how to associate the movement to music.
Students continue to build their ballet vocabulary and establish physical awareness of how to merge the vocabulary. They begin to expand their knowledge of movement allowing them to put more combinations together with more difficulty at the barre and in the center.
Dancers in this level have the ability to work through a full ballet class. Within this class the students are learning some of the more difficult steps in dance. Students work more intensely at the barre and learn the different body facings/positions of ballet in the center floor work. Across the floor combinations are more advanced and introduce more challenging turns and leaps. Preparation for pointe work begins. This is an intermediate ballet class that focuses on building strength, increasing flexibility, coordination, and musicality. Advanced terminology is introduced in the center. Pointe work may begin at this level depending on the strength of the individual dancer.
At this level we continue to build on technique, focus on expression, musicality, building strength, and coordination, while continuing to introduce more advanced steps and combinations. Dancers will have gained the tools necessary to have a strong understanding of dance while working on and having a greater understanding of artistry.
This level allows dancers to have many more performance opportunities. We continue to focus on artistry and musicality, strength and coordination, as well as preciseness and power of the different parts of class from adagio to petite allegro. At this level dancers are executing more challenging combinations. The Performance Division allows the dancers to be on-stage and bring this art form from within themselves to the audience.
This division is offered to children, teens, and adults with previous dance training or for those just becoming acquainted with the art of dance. The Open Division offers a flexible schedule to those that do not wish to or are unable to fulfill the requirements of the academic program. Students may choose classes to fit their particular dance and fitness goals. Open Division students may participate from Level II through Performance Division and any of the Open Classes offered.
