Level 4. Age 7-9
The program includes classical ballet technique, body conditioning, stretching, contemporary dance and variation. For students who expect to make strong progress, we recommend taking the full program.
The most ambitious students (ballet skills, attendance, commitment) of level 4 can start individual classes and preparation for solo performances, competitions, and more serious ballet education.
The program covers the basic elements of correct postural alignment, weight transfer, small poses, and the first rules of barre work: spacing, transitioning, hand position on the barre. This is a particularly 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 a student’s future success and progress. The program includes ballet, body conditioning, contemporary, variation classes.
