Academic Ballet Levels 1-4

For the serious young dancer, Academic Ballet offers training in ballet technique starting at age 7, and continuing through high school, with a pre-professional dance curriculum for those students who may be interested in pursuing a career in dance. Emphasis is placed on learning classical ballet technique while building strength and flexibility, confidence, musicality, and artistry.

As students progress through the program, more frequent training is required in order to accomplish the curriculum.

All Academic Ballet programs require faculty placement. Please call the office to schedule a placement class.

Students will focus their training in either the Classical Division or Contemporary Division starting at Academic Ballet Level 5.
