DESCRIPTION OF CLASSES

PREPARATORY BALLET CLASSES

Preparatory Ballet Classes are for students Ages 4-6. Students should be four by the 1st of August 2017. These classes are one hour in length and include 10-15 minutes of tap instruction. Tap helps children learn rhythm, musicality & coordination and is only taught in the preparatory ballet class structure.

Preparatory Ballet Option A                        Tuesdays         4:15-5:15 PM               Ms. Christin

Preparatory Ballet Option B                        Wednesdays    1:15-2:15 PM               Ms. Christin

BALLET CLASSES BY EVALUATION

Once students are Age 7+ (or Age 6 with at least one year of experience in preparatory ballet) they are eligible for enrollment in the following classes. Evaluations will be made by the Ballet Director and, in consultation with Instructors, the Ballet Director will give each student a recommendation for enrollment. DO NOT enroll in classes that are different than those recommended. We desire all students to benefit from instruction and enroll in classes most appropriate for their individual abilities. Some students may need more than one to two years with the curriculum of a certain class while their mind and body learn to work together and they become strong enough to execute the movements required to progress.
