Graded technique dance classes

 

Pre-Pointe & Pointe 1

Pre-Pointe is for students in Junior Company/Level 2-3 and Higher.

See Registration Page for class times.

A year-long preparatory class before dancing en pointe. Most dancers spend an average of 1-2 years in pre-pointe.

For safety reasons, enrollment in this class does not guarantee earning pointe shoes. Not all students’ feet are naturally adept to dancing en pointe, and it is therefore not safe for all students.

Co-enrollment in a Ballet Technique class is required.
Pointe Classes available include Pointe Levels 1 & 2

See Registration Page for class times.

Pointe classes are for dancers age 12 and up who are in Level 3/Pre-Teen Company and higher and who have completed Pre-Pointe with instructor permission.

Requires enrollment in one pointe class per week and co-enrollment in a Ballet Technique class each week.

Ballet, Tap, Jazz Levels 3-5

These classes are for dancers age 10 and up who love to dance. Experience is required.

Classes available include Ballet, Tap, Jazz Levels 3-5

See Registration Page for class times.

Advancement is based on correct placement, skill mastery, and instructor recommendation-not by age-which means all classes have a variety of age levels. Students spend an average of two years at each level before mastering the skills to advance. Students receive annual skills tests in class.
