Youngest Student Classes
Fairy Tale Ballet
For our youngest dancers, Fairy Tale Ballet provides a perfect introduction to ballet. Taking well known fairytale stories and setting them to music with beginning movement.
Ballet basics are introduced as dancers learn movement and coordination with music. Imagination is emphasized.
Building their basic foundation, dancers begin to explore the flow of movement and musicality.
As a dancer’s fundamentals expand, coordination of movement and music is the focus.
Classical ballet terms are emphasized along with continuing coordination, musicality and spatial awareness
Level A Technique
Classical ballet terms are emphasized with coordination, musicality and spatial awareness, and correct execution of basic ballet movement.
Level B Technique
Building on ballet fundamentals, this class increases understanding and conditioning in execution, coordination and musicality. Daily stretching and exercises are expected, with an increase in classes per week.
Level C Technique
Level C focuses on strength, flexibility, body placement and coordination. Mat work strengthens the core, back, legs and feet and improves flexibility. Elementary barre exercises teach proper placement of body and legs. In the center jumps strengthen legs and feet while simple combinations using polka, waltz and pas de basque improve coordination.
