Welcome to Ballet I, the exciting first step into the world of dedicated technical training! Aspiring dancers will focus on enhancing coordination, grace, musicality, flexibility, and balance in this sequential program. Fundamental ballet techniques and vocabularies will be introduced as well as barre work, adagio and allegro movements, and dancing in unison.

Full year tuition is $576 payable in quarterly installments of $144 per 9-week session or the reduced fee of $306 payable in quarterly installments of $76.50. First class is already discounted 50%, so additional classes will be discounted 50% of full tuition. 50% discount applies to the lower tuition fee. (Fees are as of Fall 2023.)
