Students begin a more formal classical ballet training in these levels which focus on the fundamental techniques and movements building an academic knowledge of technical skills. From correct placement of body, feet, head and arms to the basic positions and movements from which stems the foundation of ballet, the early dancer will also develop greater musicality and spatial awareness.
Students will advance to the next level at the discretion of the artistic director. Progress is based on the student's technical ability, strength, and effort rather than by age, though we give a suggested age. A student might spend more than one year in each level.
As the student progresses, additional weekly classes are added with an incremental level change.
