Division B classes are designed around a structured classical ballet class.

More Information

Division B classes are designed around a structured classical ballet class. Students use the ballet barre to learn technique and vocabulary, flexibility, coordination, and confidence. Classes in this division are carefully graded by age, physical strength, and development. Students are promoted according to individual progress in acquiring technique and strength. It is mandatory that students take one two-hour block of ballet technique classes per week. Students must be 7 years of age or older (as of Sept 1, 2018).

To participate in Spring Concert, each student must enroll in one of the Spring Concert classes indicated below (*). All enrolled students are required to participate in Spring Concert. Rehearsals begin in February 2019.

Schedule and faculty subject to change based on enrollment.
