Classes

Student Ballet 5
Student 5 is a twice weekly class available to students with many years of ballet training, solid in their basic technique, and ready to start working on more complicated combinations. This class focuses on retaining clean technique while enjoying moving into the advanced phase of vocabulary and combining of steps. This class is for the general student aiming towards dance as a recreational part of her/his life, or towards a possible career in dance forms other than ballet.

Student Ballet 5 Plus
Student Ballet 5+ continues to work on integrating energy and strength into movement. The level of difficulty throughout the class greatly increases, from the height and rotation of the legs to the number of turns and refinement of the turning position as well as the presentation, power and beating of the jumps. The students are expected to present and maintain a higher degree of proper line and placement as they move throughout the class. Dancers at this level are expected to grasp advanced concepts and discern and apply corrections quickly. As well as maintaining a high level of weekly class attendance, students of this level must work very hard physically while staying extremely focused mentally throughout the class. Dancers are allowed one to three years in either of these levels to achieve these goals, depending on their individual ability, attendance, and work.
