Advanced

Advanced Level dancers will build upon intermediate level technique and artisty in ballet and other dance disciplines.

Students at this level will have the physical ability to study classical and contemporary works, as well as choreography in complimentary dance disciplines. Dancers are expected to demonstrate responsibility for retention of material, eagerness, and attention to corrections in order to fulfill required technical standards.  In addition, artistry and self expression will be largely emphasized in this level.
