Class Descriptions

PRE-BALLET – ages 4 and 5: A once-a-week class to introduce children to basic elements of movement and ballet in a creative, fun environment. Includes some basic ideas from classical ballet.
A once-a-week class at a beginning level of Classical Ballet training. The Tuesday class will be reserved for students enrolled in the Performance Class participating in The Nutcracker and the Spring Performance.
A graded twice-a-week curriculum of more formal Classical Ballet instruction. Intermediate 1 and 2 are two one-hour classes, Intermediate 3 and 4 are two 90-minute classes per week. All 4th graders as well as 3rd graders who have already been in Elementary Ballet will be placed in Intermediate 1. Intermediate 3 and 4 students who are 11 years old and older may add Pointe class (with faculty approval).

Students generally do not advance to Intermediate 3 until at least 5th grade.

Students generally do not advance to Intermediate 4 until at least 7th grade.

Students generally do not advance to Intermediate 5 until at least 9th grade.

Students generally do not advance to the Advanced class until at least 10th grade.

Three 90-minute classes per week including pointe work and men’s work. Students must take a minimum of 5.75 hours per week including Variations and/or Modern.
These are “rehearsals” for The Nutcracker and for a special “dance” in the Spring Performance with costumes and original choreography created specifically for the students involved.

Performance Elementary – for Elementary Ballet students

Performance Int. 1 and 2 – for Intermediate 1 and 2 Ballet students

Performance Int. 3 – for Intermediate 3 Ballet students

Performance Int. 4 and 5 – for Intermediate 4 and 5 Ballet students

Performance Company 1, 2, and 3 – for Advanced Ballet students

(must be 11 years old and approved by faculty) – A once-a-week class to introduce intermediate ballet students to working “en pointe.” Dancing on toe is part of the classical ballet technique for more experienced dancers after several years of intense training.
(must be in Advanced Ballet) – A once-a-week class to introduce advanced ballet students to the classical repertoire of female pointe solos.
(for Intermediate 4 level and above) – A once-a-week class to introduce competent ballet students to the vocabulary of American modern dance as invented by Martha Graham, Lester Horton, Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor, and others. Similar to the work done at most college/university dance programs and at the Greenville County Schools’ Fine Arts Center.
Introduces students to the basics of Classical Ballet technique including barre work, center work, turns, and jumps. It is paced for adult brains, so we can cover more than a six-year-old beginner, but we give consideration to the fact that the adult bodies may not be in perfect ballerina shape! Each class will be taught to the level of the students attending, usually an intermediate level.
Jazz – With a focus on warm-up and stretches, across the floor combinations, and skills and technical development; these structured classes progress and challenge the eager-to-learn dancer. Jazz uses ballet technique to create a more stylized form of movement influenced by the mood and music of different decades.
Tap – Traditional American Tap dancing; from Fred Astaire to Savion Glover. Students develop and perfect rhythmic sounds using the full foot or ball of the foot. Tap shoes required.
Hip-Hop is currently America’s most popular dance style. Come see why! Dancers will be exploring basic Hip-Hop techniques and incorporating basic Jazz movements. Hip-Hop derives from jazz, but includes more stylized movements made popular by dance shows like SYTYCD. We offer fresh and hip choreography while staying clean and age appropriate.
Acro – “Acrobatics” class includes basic tumbling, flexibility exercises and contortion tricks.
