We offer a leveled classical ballet program (beginner 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.
All students are welcomed in our ballet program, but for upper levels, a teacher recommendation or an informal audition may be required (such as participating in a class to determine correct level placement). Please contact us with any questions.
We also offer two levels of contemporary dance for teens and adults - a beginner/intermediate class and an intermediate/advanced class for teens and adults with significant prior training in contemporary, lyrical, or ballet. These classes develop strong contemporary technique and offer students the opportunity to express themselves through the latest lyrical and contemporary styles.
Our 2023-2024 dance year is divided into two sessions: Session 1 runs September 4, 2023 through January 20, 2024, and Session 2 runs February 5, 2024 through June 8, 2024.
