Beginning/Intermediate

Beginning/Intermediate Ballet continues to build on the basic progression of a ballet class. Students work at the barre and move to more complex center exercises and movement sequences across the floor. This class will combine ballet vocabulary, rhythmic exercises, and stretches in a progressive class at a instructed pace for students to gain strength, increase flexibility, and greater body control.

Intermediate/Advanced

For the experienced dancer and/or professional that is familiar with the progression and structure of a ballet class. This class moves quickly through the barre, center work (adagio and pirouettes), and jumps (petit allegro and grande allegro).

Pointe/Variations

The primary focus is pointe technique and building endurance in the shoes. Variations from the classical ballet repertoire are introduced once strength, endurance, and body control are achieved.
