Any missed classes must be made up. 

 

The ballet enrichment program is leveled by skill and age. Those dancers age 9-10 with at least one year of a weekly hour ballet class and dancers ages 11 and up with two years of a weekly or bi-weekly hour ballet class are eligible to audition. We will consider 8 year olds if they show a maturity and an ability to stay on task in an hour ballet class. Contact Dana for clarification. Additional criteria (see below) will also be taken into account: 

  • Turned out legs- Ability to hold the turn-out from the hip with proper body alignment and no twisting at the knees or ankles

  • Base level of flexibility in the hips, legs and feet (dancers should have splits or be an inch from the floor)

  • Jump- extension through the legs and taking off/landing by rolling through the feet.

  • Endurance/Strength- Ability to execute the given class from start to finish without losing concentration(mental) or  losing physical strength. 

  • Students must be willing and able to adhere to ballet rules of etiquette.

  • Exhibits the ability to learn and assimilate exercises with clarity and attention to details.

Dress code for the audition is black leotard (no ballet skirts), pink tights, ballet shoes and ballet bun.  For the audition, dancers will take a ballet class with barre and center work.
