Intermediate

Intermediate dancers will carry a rigorous course load consisting of ballet technique, and other dance disciplines. Classes for this level meet five days a week.

Intermediate dancers will be introduced to more advanced vocabulary, growing in both artistry and technique. Classes will require increased stamina, flexibility, intellectual awareness, and personal commitment. Ladies will have pointe class four days a week. Gentlemen in this level will have a men’s class twice per week, in addition to their usual technique classes. Students should expect two consecutive years of study, at minimum, for completion of the Intermediate Level.
