PRE-PROFESSIONAL DIVISION

 

Pre-Professional Division ballet classes are appropriate for series students with a significant ballet training background.  A placement class is required for enrollment in all Pre-Professional Division classes. 

Fall classes will begin August 8, 2022.





 
Class Descriptions

Level D Required six classes/wk & E Required seven 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 III class is 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 III:  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.

Stretch & Strength:  Taught and designed by Alex Ossadnik this class provides a low impact full body workout that strengthens and stretches all major muscle groups. 

Ballet Mat: Taught by Michelle Davis this class was originally intended for injured dancers but is used by anyone looking to build core strength in an artistic environment. It consists of ballet exercises adapted for non-weight bearing and is combined with Yoga and PT for a hybrid workout that will keep you fit even if injured and help reach greater levels of strength. For levels CI through Adults.

BRT COVID Safety Protocols

To help us strive to provide dancers with a safe environment to learn and practice their art we continue to add the following safeguards to protect our students and staff while the Covid-19 Community level remains high.

  • Masks will be required to be worn while in the lobby and dressing room areas.
  • Starting August 8, 2022, BRT’s lobby and dressing rooms will be open again.
  • Also starting August 8th, Masks will be optional for dancers while dancing in the A, B, or C studios.
  • BRT’s faculty will continue to wear masks while teaching.
  • If you are not feeling well, have flu-like symptoms, or test positive for Covid-19, do not come to the studio. Many of the classes have options for making up a class or joining virtually. Follow local and CDC guidelines for isolation, testing, and recovery before returning to the studio.
  • Dancers will keep their ballet bags and street clothes with them during class (please do NOT bring more than you need for the class).
  • Class schedule has been staggered to limit traffic inside the building.
  • Students need to arrive no more than 10 minutes before their designated time. They must also be picked up promptly after their class finishes.
  • If the lobby does get crowded, we ask parents to please wait for your children outside the building.
  • High contact surfaces, including but not limited to barres, equipment, doorknobs, etc., will be wiped down between classes.
  • Hand sanitizer will be used before entering the studio and upon completion of class.
  • Dancers must bring their own water bottle. Food and gum are not permitted in the studio. 

BRT Home Studio Recommendations

Please make sure your Zoom username is your real name (student or parent) and not a generic name i.e. “iPad 2”. This is for attendance and security purposes.

Internet Speed 
Run an internet speed test in the room you plan to use as your at-home studio. You can do this HERE. If speeds are slow, Zoom will freeze, and dancers may have difficulty fully participating in class. Wifi extenders can be purchased to help remedy this issue.
