Major portions of classes are devoted to formal/specific dance instruction, with a gentler approach for the younger students. The dance year culminates in June with our Spring Concert where students ages 5 and up perform in the recital.
Our DANCE ‘N PLAY® program, a stepping stone to preschool, is designed to ensure young children (ages 2.5 to 4 years) are not beginning formal training too early. They are gently encouraged to explore movement and imagination. Instruction is geared to provide social interaction in a fun and exciting atmosphere.
Pointe work is authorized by the Director of the Ballet Program.
