ACADEMIC BALLET PROGRAM (LEVELS 1-4)

For the serious young dancer, Academic Ballet offers training in ballet technique starting at age 7, and continuing through high school, with a pre-professional dance curriculum for those students who may be interested in pursuing a career in dance. Emphasis is placed on learning classical ballet technique while building strength and flexibility, confidence, musicality, and artistry.

As students progress through the program, more frequent training is required in order to accomplish the curriculum.
 

All-Academic Ballet programs require faculty placement and full-year enrollment. Please call the office to schedule a placement class.

 

Students will focus their training in either the Classical Division or Contemporary Division starting at Academic Ballet Level 5.

Academic Ballet 1 students are eligible to perform in The Nutcracker, the Winter Showcase, and the Annual Scholarship Gala. Academic Ballet Level 2-4 students are eligible to perform in The Nutcracker, the Spring Ballet, and the Annual Scholarship Gala. In the instance that we cannot produce planned performances due to COVID restrictions, video will be taken in in-studio classes and shared with parents.
