Children’s Division (3-6 years old)
Introduce your child to the world of ballet in an enchanting class that includes magical fairy tale stories and dances. A new story is highlighted each week. Children must have turned three before the start of the session and must be potty trained. Students must receive teacher consent before advancing from the 3-4 ½ to the 4 ½-6 level.
Pre-Ballet Division (5 ½-7 years old)
This ballet class focuses on establishing proper classical ballet technique. Students will begin basic barre exercises, learn choreography and continue to explore movement with props and accessories. One ballet story is highlighted per session. Students must receive teacher consent before entering this division.
Ballet 1 & 1B (7-10 years old)
These levels continue to focus on proper classical ballet technique in the Storybook way … with creativity and a touch of magic! Students will be educated in the mechanics of the body, musicality, French terminology and classroom etiquette. Theatrical/performing qualities will be explored through choreography. Students must receive teacher consent before entering these levels. These levels utilize a year-round curriculum and therefore we do not advance students into these levels mid-year.
