Preparatory Division (ages 10-14)

Level 4 - Ages 12 and up

Level 4 is the last level in the Preparatory Division. Flamenco and Modern dance classes become part of their curriculum. In addition, girls begin dancing en pointe.

Beginning pointe work is a milestone step in a young dancers training requires a slow methodical approach to ensure that the strength needed to dance en pointe successfully is addressed. Students will be separated into groups based on their pointe experience. Boys will attend separate Men’s Technique classes as part of their Level 4 course. Students should expect at least two consecutive years of study for completion of Level 4.
