Ballet Arts offers dance classes from pre-school level to professional and adult level in many different dance forms. Our core programs are ballet. It is the most structured dance form and provides a basis for other dance forms. Our ballet classes are graded according to age and ability and each ballet level fulfills its own syllabus. For those entering our core ballet program with prior training, we require the new student to attend a class where they will be evaluated. The evaluation class is free and is designed to make the transition to a new school as easy as possible for the student.
Class offerings include:
- Classical Ballet
- Pointe Technique
- Teen/Adult Ballet
- Character Ballet
- Hip Hop
- Contemporary Dance

All classes begin promptly. Students are expected to be dressed and ready to start class on time. Latecomers not only disturb the class, but subject themselves to injury due to insufficient warm-up. Students who are more than ten minutes late may be refused entry.
We recommend that all clothing and shoes be clearly labeled. The studio is not responsible for lost items. If you do lose an item, check the lost and found container in the student's dressing room.
