Advanced intermediate level, age 9-11
Students will continue to strengthen their ballet technique, flexibility, and performance. Combinations continue to increase in difficulty and students are challenged to further their retention skills. Emphasis is on the enjoyment of dance within the respect and discipline of classical ballet training. This level also prepares students for future pointe work.
Students must wear their class gear at all times. Girls should wear a burgundy leotard, pink or skin toned footed ballet tights, and pink or skin toned ballet slippers (canvas or leather). Boys should wear black tights and white t-shirt with black ballet slippers (canvas or leather). Children who are gender expansive may wear whichever suits them. Note- tights and shoes must match (i.e. pink shoes/pink tights or skin tone shoes/skin tone tights).
