Level 6 & Senior Level

Our Level 6 and Senior classes are combined for students approximately 15 years of age through adults. Placement in these classes is based not only on age, but also on ability and years of experience.

Class length ranges from 1 to 1 ½ hours. The ballet classes in this level also include pointe work and partnering skills.  Students at this level are expected to take multiple classes per week to improve their skill.

Ballet serves as a backbone for many other styles of dance. Ballet is based on techniques that have been developed over centuries and uses music and dance to tell stories. Ballet dancers have the ability to transport an audience to another world.
