This class meets 3x per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
Ballet 4 emphasizes progressive development of proper technique, body alignment, and classical line. Increased focus on strengthening the core of the body is taught so that students maintain healthy physical progression through the levels. More ballet vocabulary is introduced and greater emphasis on stretching and flexibility is part of classroom exercises. Students in the Ballet 4 Level have the opportunity to expand their interest in dance by taking Contemporary Modern and Jazz technique courses and registering for the Cornish Preparatory Dance Program’s Company 2. Company 2 performs in the Spring Concert, giving students the chance to become more fully-realized dancers.
