Our  ballet program has been designed for the recreational ballet student, with the aim of encouraging an appreciation of dance, physical activity and self-discipline. Students of this program progress through each level at a pace matched to their own development. Drawing from the combined traditions of the Cecchetti syllabus, R.A.D. and Vaganova systems  our professionally trained teachers will ensure that each student acquires a solid fundamental  base in ballet technique. Our  Ballet Company members (invitation only) are given the  opportunity to work with professional choreographers as well as  perform for the community.  We currently offer six  levels of ballet training as well as pointe and repertoire classes.  We believe that ballet is the foundation of  strong dancers.  Through our ballet program, we strive to develop dancers who are able to use their ballet technique in other contemporary dance forms. A new and exciting ballet syllabus will be implemented in the fall of 2019 as well as yearly examinations for those who wish to participate.
