Ballet & Contemporary

Our ballet and contemporary classes include levels 1-3 and Academy. These classes are designed to produce the skill and artistry required for natural dance progression. Students are placed into classes based on multiple factors, including skill, age and length of time in ballet.

For the serious dancer, our Academy classes include variations, pas de deux, dance theory, pointe, conditioning & stretching and yoga. Academy dancers train 18+ hours per week in order to prepare for auditions and ballet competitions.

Auditions for Academy classes are held each May. Please contact us if you are interested in auditioning for this program.
