Elementary level students transition from the Children’s program and enter a more structured class environment.  From this point, ballet students begin to broaden their horizons.  Their education in ballet terminology, technique, anatomy, and placement increase extensively.

Hour long classes are now needed to assure proper alignment, muscular development, and proficiency in movement.

Placement within this classification is with the approval of the instructors.

Elementary 1: Our syllabus based on the Royal Academy of Dance insures a smooth transition from the Primary level. Tuesdays 5:30 – 6:30pm

Continuing Elementary (2 & 3):  Continued work on the previous year and building strength and skill is our focus.  In this very important level… we begin preparation for placement in the Intermediate Level… ***It is important to know that the Elementary Level may take longer for some students.  Placement in the Intermediate class requires a certain amount  of strength, alignment, skill, maturity and commitment. Thursdays 5:00-600pm

Pre-Intermediate: The Monday class is a Basic Ballet technique class that is “Pre Intermediate”….A wonderful opportunity for more time in class so necessary to work on technique, strength, balance, turns and combinations that will allow dancers to move forward to the Intermediate level. Open to Continuing Elementary (2 & 3) level dancers as well as Teens who fit the criteria.  This class is required for Continuing Elementary (2 & 3)dancers to be placed in the Intermediate level. Mondays 5:45- 7:00pm
