The Ballet Program is separated into 2 levels (Junior and Senior). Classical classes are taught using principles from French, American and Russian technique and styles. Taught by classical trained instructors, students are instructed in classroom etiquette, attire, vocabulary, wellness, injury prevention, nutrition, ballet history, career paths, ballet conditioning to fully round out the dancer.
Senior Academy are levels 1-4. If there are too many dancers in a class we will create another. Dancers must be 12 by Aug. 1 to be in the Sr. Program. There are times when a dancer excels and will be at the level as the Seniors but not old enough. The director will make the decision that is best for the dancers in all aspects of the dance art.
