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 1- ages 7-10(1st part of serious training)
Level 2- ages 8-12(2nd phase of serious training or for beginner-adv. beginner)
Level 3- Must have at least 2-3 years training or recommendation from teacher. 2 Ballet clas-ses per week are recommended, to exceed at this point.
Level 4- Must have teacher recommendation and take 2 classes a week.
Level 5- Must have teacher recommendation and take 2 classes a week.
A dancer must take 2 Ballet classes per week to take any level pointe class.
Performance classes- 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 (for Hip Hop).
You do not have to audition to be on the performance team.
Turns and Leaps classes- are required for company students and highly recommended for dancers who want to advance their abilities in Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Modern, Pointe and Ballet
