BALLET CURRICULUM 2021/2022

The ballet curriculum, for students in first thru twelfth grades focuses on immersing students in classical technique that provides a solid foundation not only in ballet, but also for other forms of dance. Jazz, modern, and musical theater students all use ballet as their fundamental training. Thru weekly training in the studio and opportunities to perform in end-of-year recitals and with IRB in The Nutcracker, students will develop musicality, coordination, discipline, and a versatile, classical technique, as well as an in depth understanding of the history and philosophies of dance.
