Pre-Professional (11-19)

Level 5 (Evening)

Level 5 dancers will carry a rigorous course load comprised of ballet technique, character, pointe, modern and jazz.

Dancers at this level will be introduced to more advanced vocabulary. Classes will require more stamina, flexibility, intellectual awareness, and personal commitment. Dancers are expected to demonstrate responsibility for retention of material, eagerness, and attention to corrections in order to fulfill required technical standards. Dancers will also begin to develop artistry and self-expression. Students should expect two consecutive years of study, at minimum, for completion of Level 5.
