The ballet curriculum begins at the primary level and progresses through eight grades and four major classes, leading to an Advanced level.

Ballet includes all levels of technique in the Russian style (Vaganova) syllabus leading to optional yearly examinations. Additionally, all students are encouraged to build performance skills leading to the year end demonstration.

Classes in Jazz are introduced for children from five to ten years of age. Contemporary dance classes begin for students age 14 and up.

Adult classes from Beginner to Advanced levels are offered in Ballet, Jazz and Contemporary Dance. In December there is an “Open House” for interested family and friends can watch classes and in June there is a year-end demonstration in which students perform all styles of choreography. The excitement of the stage is a wonderful way to end a year of working in the studio.

Our faculty is committed to sound principles of dance training and artistic development. This year our teachers are: Merle Adam, Micah Steffler, Fiona Fagan, Rosanna Hoult, Charlotte Cain, Shannon Berry, Isabelle Sinclair- Takoff and Igor Chornovol. Our consultants and guest teachers are Nancy Parker and Dmitry Lebedev.
