Classes designed for the youngest dancers (ages 3 - 7) to foster a love of ballet while introducing students to performing and the classroom environment.
Ballet Technique and Performance
Dancers age 7 through adult build their dance skills in classes that combine technique based on the Cecchetti Method of Classical Ballet with performance skills. Students progress through the levels as they master the steps and other skills necessary for success in the next class, generally spending two to three years per level.
For ages 16+, this program is designed for dancers who are new to ballet, as well as those wanting to brush up on or continue building their previously learned skills. Classes are tailored to fit the goals of the current group of dancers. When interested, these dancers also perform in the annual spring recital.
The pointe program is open to dancers age 11+ who have met certain requirements in their dancing progression. All dancers in these classes also take at least 2 classes in the technique or teen / adult progression.
The studio offers a variety of internship opportunities for dancers age 13+. From social media and graphic design, to performance behind the scenes and teaching, our interns develop real world skills in a studio setting.
Personalized Professional Track
Dancers in Ballet 2 and higher interested in the possibility of pursuing ballet as a career, either as a performer or a teacher, follow a specialized program tailored to the individual dancer.
Dancers who choose to participate in our competition program benefit from receiving feedback from other professionals in the dance community via judge critiques and learning good sportsmanship.
Summer Classes and Workshops
Summer is a great time to continue honing dance skills or try something new. Our variety of beginning level classes, intensives for dancers with experience, and summer only workshops help our dancers keep up their skills and be ready for a new dance season.
School Year Classes
Most of our ballet classes and programs are offered during the school year. Our dance season runs from the Monday after Labor Day through mid-May. Each class meets once a week for the full dance season.
