Ballet

In this class, students expand upon their understanding of ballet technique and terminology in a blend of Russian, French, Danish, and American styles. Students also begin to incorporate their artistic expression into their dance. Students are required to attend 3 days per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.

Pre-pointe / Pointe 
Student Program Level 3 pre-pointe/pointe is for intermediate level dancers. In this class, students work on the fundamentals of beginning pointe work. Students not already on pointe gain the strength required to move on to pointe work through the same series of exercises performed on flat. Class time runs 1 hour.

*Dancers joining Student Program Level 3, who are not currently on pointe, should not purchase pointe shoes until speaking with their instructor or the Student Program principal. The students receive notification when the instructor feels that the student has sufficient strength, level of technique, and maturity necessary to begin pointe work. The decision to start pointe work will be made on an individual basis with the instructor's advice, even if the student has been on pointe at a previous studio. Instructors will check the fit of the shoes to ensure the students purchase proper shoes for their feet. Students should not sew ribbons and elastics on their shoes until they receive approval from their instructor.


Contemporary
Student Program Level 3 Contemporary is for intermediate dancers. Techniques taught in this class will consist of contemporary ballet, improvisation technique, and Horton technique. Class time runs 1 hour and is on Saturdays. This class takes part in the Spring Showcase, separate from the ballet classes.
