With a desire to support and encourage our students, while providing them with the highest caliber of training possible, we have created three complete programs: Introductory, for students 3-7; Primary for beginning students ages 7-12; and Ballet Program for serious dancers 8 and older. The programs are designed to bring a student through their entire training process, but students can join our program at any time. A placement class is required for students entering our all Ballet Program levels. Our Open Adult Program is a great option for adults and dancers 13 and up who can't make the commitment to our other Programs.
The focus of our Introductory Program is to support children in exploring movement, music and their imagination, all the while developing a better ability to focus and interact in a group environment. Kinetic skills, musicality, inner awareness, and focus improve through our Introductory Program. As students progress through the levels, not only are they exposed to classical ballet steps and vocabulary, but they also begin to follow the structure of a "real" ballet class.
In the Primary Program we offer classes in both beginning ballet and boys classes.
Students in the Primary Program ballet classes receive a strong foundation, which helps to ensure readiness for our Ballet Program. Children's Program students enrolled in ballet are eligible to audition for the Nutcracker and Surealia.
Students progess through several levels within our Ballet Program. Each student advances at his or her own rate because the training is dependent on both physical development and maturity. Students in our Ballet Program are required to take between 2 and 6 ballet classes per week (depending on their level) as well as other forms of dance. The Summer Intensive Workshops are highly recommended and quite essential for continued advancement in our Ballet Program.
