Registration will be available very soon for our 2020-2021 season! We offer classes for ages 3 to adult, including a Pre-Professional Division for the serious dance student.
Our teachers foster a positive and supportive learning environment in each class, where students will be encouraged to build confidence through accomplishments in dance. To meet the needs of our students, we offer classes through our two-division system: Pre-Professional and Community. Students in both divisions may audition for our yearly production of The Nutcracker at Zoellner Arts Center, Lehigh University, as well as our annual Spring Ballet, and other productions that may occur throughout the year.
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 Pre-Professional Division students. This revolutionary supplementary dance training (developed by Marie Walton-Mahon) will sharpen technical precision and includes exercises to strengthen core stability, muscle control, and balance. Click here for more information about this exciting program! In this class, students will be working with various sizes of exercise balls (provided by BGLV) and resistance bands on a yoga mat. 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.
Classes available In-Studio, or Online via the Zoom platform. There is a 10% discount for students registering for the Zoom online classes.
Please note that any makeups for these classes may be via our online method as space is limited because of the COVID health mandates by the governor of Pennsylvania.
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.
Classes available In-Studio for all levels, or Online via the Zoom platform for the following levels: Youth Ballet II, Youth Ballet III, and Adult Ballet. There is a 10% discount for students registering for the Zoom online classes.
Please note that any makeups for Youth Ballet II & above may be via our online method as space is limited because of the COVID health mandates by the governor of Pennsylvania.
