Student Division

The Student Division lays the groundwork for all future dance training. Lower level classes are taught slowly and carefully in order to emphasize proper posture and placement, while upper-level student division classes work on the coordination of the full body in jumps, turns, and leaps.
 
For Fall 2020, all Student Division classes will be held in a hybrid model with students alternating each week between attending live in-person or online via Zoom. There is also an online only option for each class. Please see Calendar & Info page for more information.

Dance Performance Workshop

Fridays, September 11-January 29, 4:15-5:45pm

For dancers in Ballet 2B, 3, 4, or 5

Limited to 12 dancers. Workshop will meet in-studio every week unless otherwise specified.

Our exciting Dance Performance Workshop engages students in the process of building a  dance performance from scratch through audition techniques, learning choreography, design elements, and much more. Led by faculty members Calyn Carbery and Cameron Turner, weekly classes will function as rehearsals as the dancers prepare for this year’s unique culminating presentation – a multimedia project involving recorded elements and live performance (health and safety guidelines permitting).

Please note: This is a workshop class and does not count toward the dancer’s recommended classes per week for their level to participate. Consistent class attendance is mandatory for participation.

Ballet

Ballet classes teach all of the basic positions, proper execution of the turn out of the leg, correct use of the feet, arms, and head, and the French Ballet vocabulary. Ballet helps develop strength, flexibility, musicality, and grace.
