ACADEMY PROGRAM

For students 7 to 18 years old

The Academy Division offers classes for ages 7 to 18. Enrollment in these classes is by placement only in order to ensure the proper level for each individual dancer. Dancers will continue to progress through our six levels of ballet, attending class multiple times per week. Students will explore a large variety of classical ballet terminology, enabling them to adapt to all styles and techniques of dance. All dancers will work towards building flexibility, strength, musicality, coordination, concentration, and communication of expression through movement.
