Class Descriptions

Level D Required five classes/wk & E Required eight classes/wk : These levels focus on the serious ballet student, with emphasis on commitment and performance quality. Students enrolled in the Pre‑Professional Division are expected to take all classes offered at their level. Progress in these classes depends upon regular and consistent participation. At these levels, regular attendance is crucial in order to develop and maintain the required strength and skills to safeguard against injury as the technique becomes increasingly more difficult. Absences will affect a student’s progress and their ability to be promoted with other students at their level.At these levels cross training is important and the Modern II class and Partnering (level E only) are also part of the weekly class requirement.

Company Class: Once a student begins demonstrating their mastery of Level E classes, the student may be invited to participate in some or all of the daily company technique classes.

Modern II:  Essential for serious ballet students, Modern dance technique helps dancers find their own quality of movement and core movement initiation with an emphasis on anatomical alignment and kinetic awareness of contemporary movement as well as assisting in the student’s expression through movement.

“Alex Ossadnik’s Stretch & Strength”. Taught by Ms. Ashley Torrez and designed by Mr. Ossadnik this class provides a low impact full body workout that strengthens and stretches all major muscle groups for ages 10 all the way up through adults.
