Junior Division
 ballet classes are appropriate for students ages 9+. A placement class is required for enrollment in all Junior Division classes.

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. 
 

JUNIOR DIVISION
Level CI
 
Required two days/wk (ages 9+):  This level is considered a pre-pointe class and provides an important core understanding of using the classical vocabulary to properly execute fundamental steps used in ballet. This creates a solid platform for the students to be ready to advance into pointe work, more advanced steps, and be prepared for the demands of the Pre-Professional Division.

Level CII Required three days/wk:  This level is considered a beginning pointe class. Whether in soft shoes or pointe shoes, every student will learn and execute the same basic pointe exercises that will carry them through the rest of their dancing years. Students are individually monitored, during which time the teacher will determine a student’s readiness for pointe shoes. When a student is ready for pointe shoes, their teacher will arrange to meet with the dancer and their parents at a dancewear store to ensure she receives the right style and size of shoes.

PRE-PROFESSIONAL DIVISION
Levels D & E:
  Ballet Theatre’s Pre-Professional Division focuses 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.

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.

Pointe Shoes:  To be considered for pointe shoes, students must be at least 11 years old, their growth plates in their feet fully fused, have had a minimum of 3 full years of classical ballet training, and currently be taking (at least) three classes a week. Proper strength and technical ability are required. Feet must be correctly placed in pointe shoes and aligned with the ankles and knees to avoid injury.
