Level 5 (By Placement)

Ballet and Pointe: A balance of building strength and flexibility is essential at this level to prepare for the rigors of advanced training. Barre work includes more combinations en demi-pointe and center work includes grand pirouettes and batterie. Pointe work is expanded in the center to build stability and prepare for repertoire/choreography. This class meets twice a week, and students are able to add two additional ballet classes, repertoire, character dance, modern dance and stretch/conditioning classes 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. This class meets twice per week.

Modern: With a focus on contemporary dance forms and movement, this class supports classical ballet training and allows students to develop a greater versatility of style and movement. Classes include Modern Technique and Modern variations/Partnering

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

Youth Company: Students desiring to dance at a pre-professional level are encouraged to audition for Youth Company. Students will perform multiple times per year. Please visit the Youth Company page for more details.
