Young Intermediate Ballet  (Grades 3-5)

Young Intermediate Ballet and the companion activity, Workshop Performance, are offered throughout the academic year, divided into 4 sessions of seven weeks each. For ease of scheduling, the ballet class and the performance opportunity are offered back to back on the same day.


Building on the foundation introduced in Beginning Ballet, Young Intermediate Ballet is designed for dancers with some previous experience. Material covered in this course highlights the ABT’s National Training Curriculum benchmarks of Cecchetti’s body directions, the study of pirouettes, and progression of allegro. The beauty and balance of classical ballet are emphasized through musicality, quality of movement and attention to detail.

Students realize the benefit of their hard work and commitment when they share their love of dance in the concluding performance of this class for family and friends. Each session has a different musical theme and will be choreographed and rehearsed within the specified dates. No additional weekend rehearsals make this opportunity a great fit for our busy ballet families.
