Children's Classical Ballet Classes

Spring 2020 Term

February 25 - June 1, 2020

Children’s Division classes, which include Pre-Primary through Primary Level 3 and Kid Aerial Exploration, have an open enrollment policy. The emphasis in these courses is on rhythm, dynamics, and placement, so that students graduate from Primary and Exploration classes with an understanding of spatial awareness, correct alignment, teamwork, and focus.

Student Classical Ballet & Pointe Classes

Spring 2020 Term

August 26, 2019 - June 6, 2020

All Student Division classes are taught with recognized methods designed to prepare our students for success in the performing arts. Placement in all Student Division classes is assessed by DSBPA faculty either during a class (for current students) or by private class assessment for new students that enroll after the first week of the academic year has passed.

 

We have many students who desire careers in other areas, and we believe that whatever field or endeavor students seek, it’s the preparedness, self-respect, respect for others, focus, open-mindedness, perseverance and sense of humor that come from successful training that are the keystones of all successful careers.

All Student Division classes are 36-week programs.
