Level 3 (Ages 9-12 By Placement)

Ballet: Intermediate ballet technique is introduced with more challenging combinations. Classes include a strong focus on developing ankle strength and stability in preparation for pointe work in Level 4. Students are aware of accurate alignment and execution of steps, which enables them to expand their technical vocabulary and adapt to new combinations. This class meets two days a week, and students are able to add an additional ballet class, character dance, and/or jazz to their schedule if they choose.

Character: Much of classical ballet is character, or folk dance. Students are strongly encouraged to take this class as part of their ballet training.

Stretch: In stretch and conditioning, dancers will develop greater flexibility, strength and endurance.

Jazz: Increase your range of dance vocabulary and movement by adding Jazz to your schedule. Our jazz class supports classical ballet training.
