Students are expected to gain muscular strength, develop stamina and control as they learn ballet technique appropriate for their ability. Students learn the basic ballet positions, the progression of a standard ballet barre and the French vocabulary that defines all of the steps in classical ballet. These students also move into beginning centre work, away from the support of the ballet barre. Students are placed in an environment to help improve concentration and listening skills while teaching discipline and classroom etiquette. For students 7+ years of age by September 1.
