The daily ritual of training carries you to another place - communal, but personal – this is what makes a dancer.

Children's Division

Our primary goals for young dancers are enjoyment and discovery. Elementary classical ballet concepts are combined with modern dance to introduce dance as a means of expression. In Creative Movement, students are introduced to the basic dance principles while learning coordination, spatial awareness, musicality, and flexibility. In Pre-Ballet, curriculum gradually expands with more complicated modern and improvisational exercises, folk dances and pre-ballet study, laying a foundation for the creative, cognitive, and athletic demands of classical dance training.

Beginner Ballet: Level 1, 2, 2x

Formal classical ballet training begins in these introductory levels. In this curriculum, particular attention is given to postural alignment and the child’s developing anatomy. Proper technique and musicality are emphasized, while still allowing time for natural movement and self-expression. As the student progresses, additional weekly classes are added to further develop muscle memory, coordination, balance and strength.
