Elementary I. Age 8-9
The program includes classical ballet technique, body conditioning, stretching, variation. For students who expect to make real progress, we recommend taking 4 hours per week minimum. Best for the student is a commitment to the full program.
Elementary I and Elementary II level programs are the years when the strongest students who attend full program start to prepare for more serious stage experiences. Individual meetings with a teacher help and allows students to prepare for solo variations, competitions and more.
Elementary program covers the basic elements of correct postural alignment, weight transfer, small, medium and large poses, first rules of barre work: spacing, transitioning, hand position on the barre. Basic elements in a parallel position, end of the year first elements in turn out positions.
This is a very important level as it establishes vital foundations upon which future classical ballet training will be built.
Body conditioning and stretching classes in this level are extremely important for student’s future success and progress.
