New West Ballet School


Class Information

At New West Ballet each student is part of an developmental curriculum of study. Classical ballet has evolved over the past 400 years, and continues to change even today. There are historical styles and methods that are the center of the program.

Pre-Dance starts at the age of 12 Months. These levels include Baby and Me, Creative Movement, and Ballet.

Classical levels start at the age of 8. These levels include an introduction to basic ballet concepts through advanced technique. Pointe work is introduced in the upper intermediate levels, when the student is attending ballet class three or more times per week.

Company Trainee levels must take five ballet classes per week, with pointe work and one dance elective.

We also provide lessons in Modern, Jazz, and Lyrical. These programs are also developmental and are the electives the advanced dancers can choose. However, all are encouraged to take these classes. Though ballet is our main focus, at New West Ballet we understand that dancers in this day and age need to be able to do anything. Ballet companies across the world all perform contemporary ballet pieces along with the classics.

We also offer several other classes that are for everyone, including Adult Ballet, Teen Ballet and Pilates. We believe that anyone can dance no matter your age or ability and want you to be active, learn, and have fun in a safe and positive environment. Performance opportunities are available for our adult students in most productions.
