PRE-PROFESSIONAL DIVISION

Pre-Professional Division ballet classes are appropriate for students with a significant ballet training background.  A placement class is required for enrollment in all Pre-Professional Division classes. Children Division classes are recommended for students ages 9-14 with little or no prior ballet experience. Students ages 14 and up who are new to ballet are encouraged to begin their dance training in the BRT Academy Adult Open Division.

Classes begin August 8, 2016 and conclude with the Spring Performances, May 20 & 21, 2017. Students in this division also have the opportunity to audition, August 27, 2016, to perform with BRT’s company in The Nutcracker.

Placement Class:

            Wednesday, July 27, 2016          6:30-8:00pm

 





 
Class Descriptions

Level D Required five 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 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.
