2019-2020 Dance Classes

Ballet & Pointe Classes

We offer a leveled classical ballet program (beginners through advanced) with a strong focus on correct technique while experiencing “la joie de danse” (the joy of dance).

Ballet is the technical foundation of most other dance genres, and we like to encourage our students to study ballet in addition to their other dance classes. Our ballet classes stress proper technique at the barre and center floor, with an emphasis on correct body placement, strength, and flexibility. Students learn not only correct technique, but also correct terminology.

Dress code is black leotard and pink tights (for girls) and black tights/leggings and close-fitting white t-shirt (for boys.) Pink split-sole ballet shoes for girls and black split-sole ballet shoes for boys. Hair in a bun and no jewelry. All students are welcomed in our ballet program, but for upper levels, an informal audition is usually required (such as participating in a class to determine correct level placement.) Please contact us with any questions.

Please note that many of our upper-level ballet students take multiple classes per week, and are therefore eligible for our multiple class discounts, which are as follows: 2nd class 10% discount, 3rd class 20% discount, 4th class 30% discount, 5th class 40% discount, 6th class or more 50% discount (calculated starting with longest class first, and going down to shortest class.) Tuition listed is full price, not including multi-class discounts.
