Ballet Enhancement Classes

Class Outline, Requirements, & Tuition

Ballet enhancement classes are designed to stretch and strengthen the dancer. By strengthening the core, the ballet dancer is able to enhance their classical ballet technique, giving additional stability, fluidity, and extension to these steps. These classes provided depth to the ballet training of our students. Tuition for ballet enhancement classes, if not included in base tuition rate, is an additional $25 per month per class. Class cards and drop-in rates apply as well.

To be eligible for ballet enhancement classes, all dancers must be registered in ballet classes with good attendance. Enhancement class availability varies by level, please see below for available electives for your dancer

  • Pilates: 1 hour Pilates class. 1x per week. Pilates is open to adults and students in Third Position and required for students in Fourth Position and higher. Pilates classes are designed to supplement daily ballet class by providing students with additional strength to improve core strength and stability. In addition, Pilates provides students with the ability to perform classical ballet steps more effortlessly by lengthening muscles and giving additional flexibility to the movement.
  • Stretch and Strength: 1 hour Class. 1x per week. Open to all adults and students in Fourth Position and higher. Classes are designed to supplement daily ballet class by focusing on alignment of the body, while strengthening core and adding stability.
