Level 5 students meet six times per week. Advanced level students are able to polish their skills and refine their technique with the increased number of classes per week. In addition to the required ballet curriculum, Pointe and variations are also integrated into the curriculum to expand upon their existing techniques and to enhance the dancer’s versatility. Upon completion of the Advanced Division, students have mastered a thorough knowledge of the classical ballet vocabulary while gaining supplemental training in elective classes such as Jazz, Tap, Pilates, and Contemporary/Lyrical. With the development of strong Classical Ballet Technique, students have gained valuable life skills such as commitment, discipline, motivation, confidence, and self-esteem.
