About School Of Classical Ballet And Dance

School of Classical Ballet and Dance provides high quality classical ballet training in a fun and encouraging environment. Our faculty consists of teachers with the knowledge, experience, and energy to encourage, inspire, and educate children in the technique and discipline of dance. The training we provide is based on the philosophy of learning the basics first. The children, beginning in Level 1, always do barre work first. We keep this age appropriate in length and seriousness. In this way they learn the discipline of delayed gratification. They must learn the proper technique in order to do the cool tricks in dance. We believe it is equally important to reward their hard work and discipline at the barre with many fun steps and leaps in the center. The joy children get from flying across the room is why they dance. We begin concentrating on the Vaganova method of training with our level 3, approximately ages 9-11, and continue up through our level 9 dancers with this technique. We also provide Lyrical, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Funk Tap, and Contemporary classes either in combination or as additional options depending on the age and level of the student.We feel it is extremely important to give young dancers an opportunity to perform on stage, therefore we provide a low key recital at Hoyt Sherman Place Theater. Our recital fee is low and includes the skirt and hair decoration the children wear. The rehearsals are kept to a minimum and the recitals are relatively short in length. The small children are seated in the audience with parent volunteers so they have the opportunity to watch the other dances. They are taken backstage for their performance then they return to their seat with their class. In this way they learn to be performers as well as good audience members and they do not get bored while they are waiting for their turn to dance.This low key style of recital may not be for everyone. We do not have flashy costumes and backdrops. Our focus is
