6th Grade and Older Ballet Technique

6th Grade and Older for 2022-2023

We understand that once dancers hit middle school age they have many options for activities and many of those dancers wish to explore those other activites, but also wish to continue their dance education. We also know there are dancers who wish to try a new style or who are not quite comfortable with a style and wish to work on their technique without havig to stress over choreogarphy. Our 6th Grade and Older Ballet Technique class is exactly what those students need!

Dancers in our technique only classes will focus strictly on improving their technical skills for the first semester of the year. During the second semester, dancers will have the option to learn choreography to perform in the spring recital. 

Class Key Features and Benefits:

  • Technical skills in center floor and across-the-floor are introduced and drilled
  • Center combos will be taught to challenge dancer retention
  • Technical difficulty is increased throughout the year as dancers master current skills
  • Pointe preparation skills continue to be worked and increase in difficulty
  • Class Observation without disruption through Closed Circuit Television
  • Class will have the opportunity to perform in the spring recital
