Student Division

The mission of Evergreen City Ballet is the pursuit of excellence in dance training within a nurturing and challenging environment. We offer a classical ballet based curriculum designed to introduce students to progressive levels of technique, as well as other dance disciplines to help round out their dance education. Students advance according to their individual progress. We recognize each student has unique attributes that respond to learning in different ways and we support and celebrate each student at their individual pace. We have open enrollment so no auditions are required but we encourage students to take a free placement class to help find the right class for them.

Boys ages 5-10 may take their first year of ballet free of charge. They do need to pay the $30 registration fee.

Level IV

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.

Students are required to attend Intermediate Modern. They may choose one elective class of Mat Conditioning, Yoga, Tap, Contemporary or Saturday Advanced Ballet as part of their curriculum each week.
