Noble School of Ballet

Full Season Program

 

~Sept 12, 2022 through June 1, 2023~

9 month ballet training program for age 5 & up

 

The Noble School is an homage to the late Duncan Noble, one of our founders' most influential teachers who embodied ballet itself. He taught not only the steps and technique he learned so long ago, but his great reverence for the art’s fine etiquette, discipline and history. Students of the Noble School will be taught not only technical precision, but respect for the art and love of movement itself carried on through the generations from one great teacher to the next.  As the dancer advances and matures, complexity and number of classes per week is added, as well as performance opportunities.

Season Class Levels

 

*Class placement in the full season program is based upon technical proficiency and maturity. Placement is not set in stone.  If any issues arise, please don't hesitate to contact Brandy!  Communication is very important for the best experience possible.

Beginning Ballet 1 - age 5 & 6 - 45 min class, once a week. 

These dancers are ready to build their skills and coordination needed to technically grow in the ballet discipline, while new concepts are introduced creatively to keep ballet exciting.

 

Beginning Ballet 2 -  age 6 & 7 -  45 min class, once a week. 

Body awareness and musicality continues to develop. Basic skills become perfected as strength is gained. Progression and growth happens fast and furious at this level. Solid attendance is highly encouraged as difficulty is added weekly.

 

Beginning Ballet 3 - age 7 & 8 -  1 hour class, once a week. 

Dancers at this age are ready to understand a more in depth approach.  Work at the barre is added, which requires great concentration. A strong focus on details, correct body alignment, French terminology, musicality and faster progression are emphasized during this critical year.

Intermediate Ballet - 2 classes per week.

As a first year intermediate dancer, building muscle memory with a twice a week class propels dancers into a huge year of learning. Second and third year classroom work involves learning new steps at a rapid pace building on muscle memory from the Beginning Ballet years.  Students develop a critical eye while being introduced to pirouettes and next level jumps with an ever growing understanding of their entire body. Preparation for pointe work begins during year 3 during a longer class time.

 

Jr Advanced - 3+ classes per week. 

At this stage, strength building is paramount for pointe work. Self discipline and class etiquette create a more serious environment for the amount of learning that happens daily at this level. Girls are preparing for pointe shoes. Mature dancers will be asked to become an Apprentice to the Performing Company in preparation for future company work. 

 

Advanced dancers will take 4+ classes per week, attend state conferences twice a year, and study dance in the summer. Training continues to technically advance each dancer and performances challenge the dancers artistically.  Advanced dancers will be asked to become a Performing Company member based on classroom and theater etiquette, work ethic, attitude and technical growth. Generally ages 13 & up.
