Our Junior Program provides the core of ballet training for all students learning to dance. Following the Vaganova Method, students lay down a solid foundation in their technique, vocabulary, and artistry.
These lower levels allow students to lay down a solid foundation in their technique and build their ballet vocabulary. Students focus on correct positioning of their bodies, use of muscles, coordination, and musicality. Most importantly, their instructors teach them how to learn: how to focus, react to corrections, memorize combinations/choreography, and classroom etiquette.
Stretch and Strenghtening
Stretch is incorporated within the curriculum to develop flexibility and core strength. Former rhythmic gymnast, Svetlana Scherba, teaches the students how to maximize their bodies' potential in terms of elasticity and strength. Stretch classes optimize our students' performance and progress in ballet technique classes and productions.
Musical Theatre & Jazz
We find it important to give our students a well-rounded program in order to start developing all necessary skills to dance professionally. We offer Musical Theatre and Jazz to our Junior Program so that they work on their musicality, coordination, and artistry.
Students are given the opportunity to perform 2-3 times a year in the school's productions: Fall Gala, The Nutcracker and a Spring Show. Rehearsing and performing not only gives the students additional time to work on their technique, but also immerses them in the true nature of the art form, teaching them to pick up choreography, express themselves, interpret music with their bodies, and connect with an audience.
Schedule & Tuition
Fall and Spring classes run 2 - 3 times on weekdays between the hours of 4:00 - 7:00pm. Additional rehearsals for shows occur on weekends.
