Classes

Elementary Division

Elementary Division students continue to develop coordination, musicality, and kinetic awareness while building upon skills learned in the Primary Division. In a more structured class environment, the instructors nurture the students’ love for dance and the arts through the disciplined study of classical ballet technique. Students are placed into the Elementary Division based on their age and level of dance experience.  Classes are held at the St. Matthews Studios.
