Placement based on age and ability
Foundational technique approached in a fun and creative manner
All instructors have professional experience and/or higher education degrees in dance
Designed to build a solid foundation from which future development both as a dancer and individual can emerge, the overarching principles of the primary level are to learn proper ballet class etiquette, positioning of the body, musicality, and coordination.
Offered 1 - 2 times per week, class is 1 hour long.
Dancers are introduced to barre work with more emphasis placed on turn-out and position of the arms. Level 1 classes resemble and follow the historical and physically effective format of a traditional ballet class from barre exercises to center where movement through space becomes more codified and structured.
Offered 2 times per week, students interested in moving up to Level 2 should consider taking both Level 1 classes as well as Jazz 1.
