Proficiency Program

The Proficiency Program begins at Ballet II and Modern II where students are required to study a minimum of two or more technique classes per week depending on level, striving to hone their dance skills. Classes build through Level VI in technical complexity, and nurture students’ creative and expressive abilities.

Pointe Classes

Students wishing to study en pointe must take at least three ballet classes per week and have the recommendation of an instructor.

Modern Partnering and Dance Composition

Students in Ballet V and VI may take Modern Partnering and Dance Composition. This school year sequence starts with acro yoga to build strength and skills, is followed by a modern partnering and contact improvisation sequence, and culminates in a dance composition created by the class making use of their partnering skills. This piece will be performed in the Rite of Spring; additional performance opportunities may be available for students in this class.

Classes

Classical Ballet & Modern II-VI

Elements introduced in ballet include correct body alignment, initiation of movement from the core, turnout, balance, musicality and coordination. More emphasis is placed on building stamina, carriage and quality of movement by using longer and more complex dance combinations.

In order to prepare a student for pointe work, at least three ballet technique classes per week are required. Students may study the basic principles of pointe work with the recommendation of the instructor.

Continuing the exploration of the modern dance concepts introduced in preparatory study, longer movement phrases are given along with improvisation and choreography skills. These classes develop from floor barre sequences to dynamic phrases that expand the students′ core strength, agility and the ability to move three dimensionally through space with emotional and textural nuance.

Advancement is by instructor recommendation; it is normal to spend more than one year in a level.
