Primary level. Age 7-9

Primary Level

Students will be placed into this class upon completion of a placement class.
In this level, students are taught fundamentals of ballet technique and develop the self-discipline necessary to continue study in the Classical Ballet Program. We continue the emphasis on the relationship between movement, music, and expression. Primary level classes prepare students for the next level of study, the beginning of the School’s Classical Ballet Program. The best students ( ballet skills, attendance , commitment, fast-thinking) will start individual classes and preparation for more serious ballet education.

The students will learn:

  • proper positioning of legs and feet, muscle tone exercises.
  • Routines for back strengthening and flexibility. Proper posture while sitting, standing or laying down.
  • Classical arm positions (basis: arondy/alonge) proper formation of the wrist.
  • Jumps: take-off, landing and posture before and after jumping, practice a range of jump styles.
  • Musicality and rhythm comprehension. Stepping into and out of the music phrasing.
  • Choreography schemes.

Age range: At least age 7 by September 1st
Time commitment: 3 classes 2 days a week.
