3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Advanced intermediate level, age 9-11  

Class will be available in person and online. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, classes on site will be capped at 10, and students must wear masks.

In Junior Ballet, students will see an increase in difficulty in barre and center work, and grand allegro and coda will be introduced. Emphasis is on building stamina and developing different balletic qualities. To join Junior Ballet, students are required to have the necessary strength to begin pointe work.

All students must bring ballet shoes and leotards; class details will be given when registration is completed.

Please note that students may be placed in class based on their ability instead of their age.
