Summer Upper Division
All Upper Division Classes are by Placement only.
Students in the Upper Division are challenged in advanced ballet technique with exercises and combinations that will help develop the necessary strength to perform the many various dances from the classical repertoire as well as more contemporary neo-classical dances. These dancers will begin to demonstrate an understanding of and ability to perform at a more professional level not just technically, but artistically, as well. Students in these levels show increasing interest and focus as the intensity of training increases.
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.
All levels are by placement. Continuing students are evaluated each year for placement. New students may schedule a placement class.
Placement is at the sole discretion of TMB Ballet, and depends on a variety of factors including artistry, technique, attendance, ability to apply corrections, maturity and attitude
