Ballet III / Pre-Pointe is an upper intermediate/lower advanced level class for experienced ballet students who are 13+ on 10/1. (Beginning students age 13 or older should enroll in Ballet II as their primary class.)
In order to make expected progress, students at this level are VERY strongly encouraged to take at least one additional weekly ballet class in Ballet II to facilitate strong muscle memory and overall skill progression. Ballet III students who take two ballet classes per week are considered pre-pointe candidates as frequent ballet training is important for a safe transition into pointe. Select Ballet III students may go en pointe during the course of Ballet III.
Ballet students enrolled in two or more weekly classes will only perform with their primary ballet class; tuition only is charged for the additional weekly ballet class(es).
Because the curriculum is based on the age and corresponding developmental abilities of the students, strict adherence to the minimum age requirement and pre-requisite is enforced.
Dress code is the Revolution black tank pinch front black leotard, pink footed dance tights and pink leather or canvas ballet shoes. A short black dance skirt is optional. No bras may show under the leotard. Hair must be in a neat bun.
All apparel is available at the studio. The required leotard is included in your All-Inclusive Monthly Fee!
