NEW BEGINNINGS

“DANCE WITH ME”:  Your two-year-old boy or girl will love spending some extra special fun time with you or their favorite caregiver.  You'll see smiles and hear giggles as they explore the joy of music and movement with you by their side.  Motor, language, and musical skills are developed simultaneously while your child learns about level, tempo, energy, and space.  This class meets once per week for 30 minutes.  Experience Required:  A desire to jump for joy!


THE ENCHANTED FOREST

Your child will blossom and thrive as they immerse themselves in this unique and imaginative story-based program that weaves together a strong, age appropriate foundation in classical ballet with the beauty of nature, classical music, self-command, and friendship building.  The Enchanted Forest is a complete leveled ballet program for children age three through First Grade.


THE FOUNDATION YEARS

LEVELS 1,2, & 3:  Your seven year old will begin the formal training of ballet in Level 1 with two 1-hour ballet technique classes per week.  Their growing commitment expands in Level 2 with two 70-minute ballet technique classes and in Level 3 with two 85-minute technique classes.  Your child will be excited and challenged by participating in "elective" classes that introduce them to Jazz, Modern, Character, Contemporary or concentrate on flexibility and strength.

GROWING TALENT

LEVELS 4 & 5:  Your intermediate/advanced student will expand their training commitment by taking three 90-minute ballet technique classes which are each followed by 30 minutes of pointework.  Your student will be excited and challenged by participating in "elective" classes that introduce them to Jazz, Modern, Character, Contemporary or concentrate on flexibility and strength.


THE JOY OF DANCE

Boys, Bodies, and Second Chances

BOYS:  The art of ballet would not exist without the male “danseur.”  Your son will be challenged to discover his strengths, both physical mental, and press on in his training toward excellence and self-command.  He will learn skills that will serve him throughout his life: perseverance, self-control, delayed-gratification.  All programs at Classical Ballet School are open to boys and men.  Designated boys’/men’s classes are offered with sufficient enrollment.

REAL BODIES:  Ballet is for every BODY.  You will feel warmly welcomed and fully accepted in our unique environment.  You will be excited to learn that we are ALL students striving to excel in the discipline and art of ballet...and we have a lot of fun doing it!

ADULT & TEEN BEGINNERS:  You believe the joy of dance isn't only for children!  You've waited your entire life to fulfill the childhood dream of learning to dance - to be a ballerina.  You'll find people just like yourself at our Ballet Conditioning class.  No judgement, just 75 wonderful minutes of pure ballet technique followed by 15 minutes of relaxing therapeutic stretching.  You'll leave class feeling delighted, challenged, balanced, and inspired!  You may want to try our Ballet/Tap Adult Combo class for even more fun!
