BALLET (Levels I-V, ages 8+)

Enjoyment of movement, expression, and sensitivity to music are combined with discipline in the study of ballet. It is an established technique with a scientific, anatomical approach to movement, teaching about the alignment and growth of the body. Ballet is the basis for all dance disciplines.  Ballet at CIDis based off the Vaganova (Russian) syllabus, however students will also become familiar with the other schools and styles of ballet throughout their training.

Being that ballet dance is a core subject in all dance training, students will be educated and challenged to continually grow and develop their technique. Ballet training will also work on providing grace, strength, poise, balance and flexibility which will help improve students’ training in other subjects and activities. At an advanced level, ballet students may have the opportunity to go on pointe and have more opportunities to study the unique and beautiful style of ballet performance.

We believe that CID ballet students need to have a strong, technical foundation, but also need a place to love and nurture their “inner ballerina”!!

Advancement is based on correct placement, skill mastery, and instructor recommendation-not by age-which means all classes have a variety of age levels. Students spend an average of two years at each level before mastering the skills to advance. Students receive annual skills tests.
