Available Ballet classes
Pre-Ballet (2 rising 3 year olds) An introduction to ballet dance in a playful setting, through our mini-ballet program. Here at our studios in Marietta children are taught rhythm, coordination, basic skills and terminology through song and dance routines. A Mini-Recital is held at our Black Box Theatre in May to gently ease children into performing.
Ballet (Ages 4-7) Designed for the younger dancer interested in learning classical ballet. Focus is on technique, coordination, musical rhythm, elementary positions of ballet and creative expression.
Ballet (Ages 8 – 12) Classes are organized by technical skill Level.
Older dancers in our primary program work on both introducing and refining basic ballet technique; with a new maturity enabling them to take their dance education to the next level.
Teen Ballet Program focuses upon students really refining the skills they have already learned in previous years, whilst developing the dancers ballet technique in preparation for performance in both our BAPA Recitals. Teachers will also ensure that the dancers core skills and understanding of ballet as an art form is maintained throughout and developed. Students are encouraged to take ballet twice a week to really develop their skills.
