Our Ballet IV classes are for students who are moving from Ballet III or who already have dance experience. (If your child is transferring from another school please call in advance so we can place them in the proper class.) It is a Beginner Pointe class using the Vaganova technique with a bit of the classical french style. The students will start the class with a warm-up stretch, that leads into their barre where they will go over there basics, build on what they learned from ballet III and start learning the basics of pointe work. From there, they will go to the center and take what they have learned at the barre and start applying it to their floor work now with an adagio. The students will continue training in turning and spotting as well as pirouettes. They will move on to petite allegro and grand allegro steps from there. At the end of class they end with a warm down stretch and conditioning that will improve their leg and foot muscles and prepare them for pointe work. Three classes a week is required along with Ballet Conditioning for this Level. Four to Five Classes a week are recommended for this level.  We do have a dress code for this class (see the tab listed “Dress Code”), and we ask that it is respected and followed. If you have any questions please contact us by phone, e-mail or Facebook. The first class is no obligation and your child can wear something comfortable when trying the class. We have the uniforms for sale at the studio. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch, but we ask that you stay in the designated seating area and please do not interfere with the class or try and “coach” your child. If it is your first time coming to class, please come 15 minutes early, to sign paperwork and get your child settled into the class. You may opt to fill out the paperwork in advance instead by downloading and signing the forms on the tab listed as rom“Registration Forms”
