Advanced Level / Pointe

Students at the Advanced Level will learn advanced technique and focus on correct alignment, strength, flexibility, speed, acting skills and musicality and many other things important to the advanced student.   They will work on developing and strengthening the muscles needed to support the body in pointe shoes and will begin working on pointe.  They will develop their partnering skills and learn about the art of pas de deux.  They will learn original variations from many classical ballets as well.  We believe that performing experiences are an essential element in a serious student's artistic and technical development. Therefore, we provide advanced students  with the opportunity to prepare for and perform in full length and original productions.  All advanced students are encouraged to participate and perform in our stage productions. The roles are assigned on an audition-only basis. Recommend 4 to 5 classes a week.  Required to complete 8 sessions of each class.  Advanced classes limited to 16 students.
