The Creative Ballet curriculum is designed to gently introduce our youngest students to ballet to a structured and safe classroom environment. Classes are narrative in nature and lead students through a series of movement stories and ballet-based activities. Nurturing dreams, sparking creativity and fostering aspirations are top priorities of the Academy.
Pre-Ballet classes are designed to introduce boys and girls to the world of classical ballet in a joyful and positive environment. Introducing students to the basic shapes, positions, postures and traditions of classical ballet, this curriculum enhances both cognitive and physical development at this important time.
Formal ballet training begins in the Lower School, a rigorous and comprehensive program of the highest caliber. Our exceptional staff of professionals makes Ballet Austin’s carefully crafted curriculum come alive by developing strong bodies, a sound sense of purpose and a passion to excel. The commitment to teach the next generation is our highest priority.
Classical ballet training continues in the Upper School. At this level, students must possess the determination to commit to a serious ballet program and have the required technical ability and physical strength. Developing a life-long love and appreciation of dance is one of the Academy's principal goals.
