The Academy

Intermediate & Advanced

Intermediate & Advanced Levels are designed for ballet students to continue to expand their education in ballet while introducing them to more diverse dance disciplines.

Students will enjoy the continuation of study in other dance disciplines such as jazz, modern and conditioning. Many classes are taught to live piano accompaniment, a crucial element in developing the dancer’s understanding of the relationship between music and movement.


Be available to dedicate 5 days a week to attending class

Students will expand their knowledge:

  • Variations
  • Modern
  • Jazz
  • Body Conditioning
  • and more
