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, Jazz, and Modern are also given. Additional performance opportunities will take place throughout the year.

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.

Space permitting, new students are accepted throughout the year! We offer classes for ages 3 to adult, including beginning ballet for teens and adults.

Tuition price is for one class per week for the fifteen week session.
