our academy: level-based ballet & modern training

The Classical & Contemporary Ballet Program
Lower School Division Levels 1-2, ages 7+
Upper School - Pre-Professional Division Levels 3-6

Arts Ballet Academy Students will present The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in April 2012
The Classical & Contemporary Ballet Program
begins with students (ages 7+) who are ready for serious and fun ballet training. The level-based ballet syllabus uses primarily R.A.D. and Vagonova technique and incorporates elements from the dance theory and techniques of master teacher Finis Jhung, American influences, and a continuance of the our teaching philosophy. Students practice classical ballet technique, learn to use their body correctly through awareness of kinetics, coordination, anatomy, and proper body alignment, and strive to become well-trained, artistic, musical, and adaptable dancers. Dancers are always encouraged to find joy and expression in their art and share that gift with others.

Contemporary, modern, and lyrical technique classes, skills classes, pre-pointe/pointe, dance conditioning, jazz/broadway, tap, acting for dancers, hip-hop, world dance, and choreography are extensions to the ballet program for these dedicated dancers.
