Student Division

B Level

B level dance classes for kids age 7 and older are designed around a structured classical ballet class.

More Information

B level classes are designed around a structured classical ballet class. Students use the ballet barre to learn technique and vocabulary, flexibility, coordination, and confidence. Classes at this level 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 two one-hour classes per week; split blocks are not permitted. Students must be 7 years of age or older (as of Sept 1, 2023).

To participate in Spring Concert, each student must enroll in one of the Spring Concert classes indicated below (*). Rehearsals begin in January 2024 with a 15-minute extension.

Schedule and faculty subject to change based on enrollment.
