PRE-PRIMARY 1 (5-6 YEARS)
The Pre-Primary 1 class is designed to continue building on concepts introduced in Pre-Ballet. The skills that they are learning in this class will assist them in whatever dance form they should choose in the future. We incorporate themes that will interest your child while teaching them the fundamentals of dance in a fun and creative way.
PRE-PRIMARY 2 (6-7 YEARS)
The Pre-Primary 2 class is designed to continue building on concepts introduced in Pre-Primary 1. Ensuring a solid foundation has been built is extremely important to us as we believe it ensures your child is safe and creates a dancer who is able to move into any form of dance in the future with a seamless transition. The work covered in PP2 focuses on ensuring students are able to string the steps learned in PP1 together in simple short combinations while keeping time to music and maintaining technique.
PRIMARY (7-8 YEARS)
The Primary class is designed to continue building on concepts introduced in Pre-Primary. The concepts in Pre-Primary are perfected to ensure solid foundation is achieved prior to moving on to the Grade levels in ballet. Primary is considered the transitional grade into formal ballet. Each child will be placed according to their strengths. If you have questions as to which Primary class your child should enroll in please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
GRADE 1 AND 2
Grade 1 is a big step in a dancer’s life. Students in Gr. 1 are starting to learn steps that they will be using for the remainder of their years spent in ballet. Students often feel as they are now “big girls” as they move into a more formal dance setting. Students enrolled in their second year in Gr 1 ballet should consider enrolling in 2 ballet classes per week.
GR 2 AND 3
Students enrolled in Gr 2 Ballet & up are highly recommended to enroll in 2 ballet classes per week. This class will focus on the technical fundamentals of ballet and will ensure a solid foundation is being built.
GR 4 AND UP
Students enrolled in Gr 4 or up must enroll in 2 or more ballet classes per week.
The Teen Ballet Program was developed for students ages 12 and up who are new to ballet. Students will learn foundations of technical dance which will assist them in their other classes and/or allow them to join a more formal ballet class. Contact the studio for more information on placement for our teen program.
