Our ballet classes progress from pre-ballet through point. All classes are designed to support our belief that a dancer must be encouraged to discover their body and movement & learn the joy of dance and expression. Our Classes follow the American Ballet Theatre's Ballet Curriculum.
The Early Childhood Program is specially designed a strong foundation in dance and movement. It teaches the young dancer the basic elements of movement and dance: space and how we relate to it, both as an individual and as a member of a group; the eight basic locomotor movements; musical rhythm, beat and time; opposites and directions; and some elementary positions of ballet. Integrated with these physical concepts are the intellectual concepts of self-awareness, creative expression, imagination, teamwork, and basic body/health awareness.
Classes include ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary.
Tiny Tots - 3 year olds
Creative Movement - 4 year olds

An essential course for all dancers and gymnasts. Terminology, proper body alignment and turnout are stressed. Classes begin with barre exercises designed to strengthen the muscles of the feet, legs and back. The exercises increase flexibility of ligaments (especially at the hip), to attain balance and control, to stabilize the turnout; and gain speed in the feet and lightness in the legs. The mechanics of technique taught at the barre are brought into center floor and used in dance combinations. The fundamentals of Ballet are the basis for all other dance types. *Recommended for all students.*
Level 1 - 6-7 year olds
Level 2 - 8-10 year olds
Level 3 - 11+year olds
Level 4 & 5 - by audition
