Advanced Division – Ages 12-20

In Advanced 1 Division Pre-Pointe, students heighten their strength, control speed and mental acuity through the introduction of more complex combinations, turns, jumps and balances. Students in this level begin preparing for future pointe work by taking a specialized Pre-Pointe class, which focuses on strength and kinesthetic awareness.

In Advanced 1 Division Beginning Pointe, students begin to transition to more our more advanced syllabus, taking on more complex combinations, multiple turns, and big jumps, while refining their movements and building stamina. Female students at this level may study Beginning Pointe, if approved by Lead Faculty.

For students in Advanced 2, their attention turns to “the whole picture” as they gain a comprehensive understanding of how their upper body and lower bodies work together. They learn complex combinations quickly and focus their energies on strength, refinement, confidence and risk taking.

In Advanced 3, this challenging level offers students the opportunity to push themselves with advanced technique. 

Available courses for Advanced Division Students include Ballet Technique, Pointe, Pas de Duex, Jazz, Modern, Contemporary, Composition, Men’s Class, and other electives. Students are highly recommend to take 3 to 4 ballet classes in addition to 2 pre pointe or 3 beginning pointe class per week. We also recommend our students to participate in Jazz, Modern, Contemporary or even composition class.

Student may spend between 1 to 2 years in each level depending on their strength and mastery of ballet technique.
