Ballet 1 is a continuing class for children with previous ballet experience. Through the use of games, more advanced Ballet steps are taught, and exercises from Pre-Ballet are modified to become more challenging. Emphasis is on stretching, following directions, and becoming able to memorize basic choreography. Please note that students may be placed in class based on their ability instead of their age. All students must bring ballet shoes and leotards; gear details will be given when registration is completed. Class is 45 minutes.

  • Please note that some students may be placed into classes based on ability instead of age.
  • If a class does not meet minimum enrollment requirements, GHMS will notify parents one week in advance of the beginning of class.
  • Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all students must wear masks.
  • Class size will be capped at 10.

  • Students should wear a ballet leotard, pink footed tights, and pink ballet slippers. Students with long hair should put their hair in a traditional bun at the crown of the head. Short hair must be clipped away from the face.
  • For the leotard we recommend: style N5500C.
  • For ballet I: lavender.
