Ballet levels begin with more serious Ballet training, focusing on proper body placement, body lines, technique and proper terminology. Ballet is the foundation for dance (the “Big Momma” of dance). Ballet is essential in advanced development of Pointe, Lyrical, Contemporary Turns and Leaps, Jazz, and Tap.

Level 4- Must have teacher recommendation and take 2 classes a week.

Level 5 – Must have teacher recommendation and take 3 classes a week.

Teen Classes are great for older recreational dancers!

A dancer must take 2 Ballet classes per week to take any level pointe class. Dancers must be at Level 3 Ballet to take pointe.

Performance Hip Hop class- for kids who want more performance time and more advanced classes but do not want to commit to company. Dancers will perform in our showcase, recital, and at the Red Claws.
