Our level program is unique in the area for it’s depth of training in the primary stages. It begins by teaching students an intensely focused way to approach proper ballet movement, supported and corrected by the instructor. As the students learn how to use their muscles in a new way, repetition and correction create a strong technical foundation as the students build success on early success, leading to continued interest and achievement. Levels are open to ages from 5 (with permission) to 18. Advancement is through skill acquisition. Students may stay in our primary levels from 3 - 5 years.
