Our goal is to ensure our girls have fun while learning invaluable dance technique. At this time, our classes are offered to girls only ages 3 1/2 to 12. Our curriculum is designed for expressing age appropriate creativity, musicality, and physicality. We teach the foundations of ballet with special emphasis on expression and performance. Children also have the opportunity to perform in our annual School Show, giving them unparalleled experience in their formative years.
Beginner's Ballet (Ages 3 - 5)
Beginner's introduces a fun filled, exciting environment. Children learn the elements of creative movement and ballet while using their imagination. They also gain socialisation skills such as following instructions, working in a group, and taking turns.
Dancers learn the fundamentals through creative movement and basic ballet. They also expand their movement vocabulary through imagination, games, and creative exploration.
Fun, creative elements such as stories, games and imaginative activities will keep the pace of the class lively and engaging.

Level 1 (Ages 6-8)
This class works well for a beginner who is of age, yet continues to teach new fundamental technique. Basic ballet concepts are introduced. Fun, creative elements such as stories, games and other imaginative activities are still used to keep the class engaging. We use various elements of creative movement with an emphasis on coordination.

Level 2 (Ages 9-12)
At Level 2, we increase the level of formal training consisting of barre and centre work. We expect the girls to have proper posture, placement, and comportment of classical ballet at this level and our focus is as such. We also instruct on proper alignment and building flexibility. While this training develops a strong foundation of physical and mental understanding necessary for classical ballet, we ensure that the class environment remains light-hearted and fun for the dancers. We believe that an inviting and joy-filled atmosphere is essential for ballet training in young girls.
