Each student may provide his/her own Resistance Band measuring 6” wide and 9 feet long; or may purchase one for $5.00 at the Ballet Guild. Yoga mats are available for use in the studio, or students may choose to bring his/her own mat.

 

 

Pre-Professional Division – Register For Class »

This intense course of study is designed for the serious dance student with previous ballet experience. Placement of all students in this division is determined by audition. Classes emphasize the development of ballet skills with a focus on knowledge, proper placement, and alignment.

Students will learn ballet vocabulary through barre and centre work while building stamina, strength, flexibility, and musicality. In addition to Pointe work, classes in Variations, Repertoire, Tap, Jazz, and Modern are also given. Additional performance opportunities will take place throughout the year.

Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) is included in the class schedule for 2019-2020 school year. This revolutionary supplementary dance training will sharpen technical precision and includes exercises to strengthen core stability, muscle control, and balance.

 

Community Division – Register For Class »

Classes are offered for ages three through adult. The youngest students begin with an introduction to the basics of ballet; these include rhythm, dynamics, and terminology. Youth level classes are offered for the student who wishes to learn ballet or improve his/her technique without the commitment required in the Pre-Professional Division.

Students ages 6 & up also have the opportunity to audition for Ballet Guild productions. Adults with or without dance experience will find our classes fulfilling and will gain a greater sense of well-being while learning a method of exercise that will last a lifetime.

Progressing Ballet Technique (PBT) classes for ages nine and up is also offered also in the Community Division. This revolutionary supplementary dance training will sharpen technical precision and includes exercises to strengthen core stability, muscle control, and balance.

Space permitting, new students are accepted throughout the year! We offer ballet classes for ages 3 to adult, including beginning ballet for teens and adults; Jazz classes are available for ages 5-8. Tap dance is also included for both the Pre-Professional and Community Division students.
