CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


 







****NEW***** Children Pre-Ballet I (ages 3-4) 


Basic ballet position, creative movement, fun while challenging for the youngest ballerinas.


Must be able to follow instructions and "potty trained".  Great first class for children who


love music and movement.


 


****New**** Children Pre-Ballet II  (ages 5-7):


Children will learn some fundamental ballet poses and steps, enjoying the opportunites to learn


about classical music and famous ballets, while obtaining a balance between developmental skill sets


and emotional needs appropriate for this age group.  Students will be introduced to


barre work and some center floor exercises.


 



 


                   


















Children Ballet I/II  (Ages 8-11):


Children will learn more advance steps, utilizing barre and centre floor exercises which build upon the skill set


 


are previously learned in Pre-Ballet classes.  Ages 8-11 will involve themselves in learning traditional ballet forms and


 


movement, learning to put arm, leg, and head movements together, balance technique, and posturing. 


Ages 11-12 may begin pointe lessons along with their traditional ballet classes if strong enough.  Musicality is emphasized along  


 


with more advanced exercises.


 


 

















Adult Ballet for Health:


Geared to the mature woman to develop and maintain a healthy mind and flexible body through


 


enjoyment of ballet exercises.  These classes will include some yoga methodology for increased flexibility


and breathing exercises to increase oxygen flow throughout the body.  A progression of center floor


 


work will lead toward barre work and subsequently more advanced levels of ballet steps.  Adults should


see improved strengthening of legs and feet as classes build on previously learned steps.


 


 


























****NEW***** Adult Beginning/Intermediate Ballet (Age 18+):


Adults will learn basic fundamental ballet poses and steps, technical skills, balance, and strength


 


building for the body. Classes assume that physical conditioning of the participants is at a stronger


 


level than that of the Adult Ballet for Health class.


 


****NEW *****Adult and Teens Contemporary Ballet ,Lyrical, and Jazz Classes :


Students will learn basic ballet movements with a  contemporary twist.  No


previous experience in ballet required.  This will be a fun, easy moving  class for teens
