NEW! PRIVATE LESSONS WITH MISS RACHEL
FRIDAY | TIME: BASED ON STUDIO AVAILABILITY | COST: VARIES DEPENDING ON LENGTH OF LESSON | AGE: NO AGE REQUIREMENT | SKILL LEVEL: MUST HAVE AT LEAST ONE YEAR OF BALLET TRAINING | MISS RACHEL Private instruction, commonly known as private lessons, are designed to improve and correct inadequate or deficient technique in the ballet student. Lessons are one half to one hour long, and include intense deep-muscle exercises, stretching, body-core work and the development of the sense of musicality and rhythm of ballet steps. Consistent attendance is imperative for the work to take effect. The length of time for private lessons can be from one month to an indefinite period, depending on the needs of the individual student. Private lessons benefit students who have had at least one year of ballet training, preferably two years. Age does not matter, though younger students usually take only one half to forty five minute lessons. Strengthening the foundation work is necessary to all students who have difficulty with the fundamental ballet concepts of correct turn out and placement of the body. Coaching for solo or duet performances is also available, for students who need guidance toward bringing their performance levels up for recitals or competitions. In this area, students who have had one or more sessions of private lessons with Miss Rachel will be eligible.

NEW! Level I Ballet & Conditioning
FRIDAY | 4:30PM - 5:30PM (60 MINUTES) (Begins Friday, February 10th) | $55.00.MONTH (NOT included in Unlimited Pricing Packages) | AGES 7-10 | MISS RACHEL (Highly Recommended For Company Members) *Any offered classes are subject to cancellation if minimum enrollment is not met. Level 1 Elementary level of Vaganova ballet technique, introduces the foundation work of ballet exercises at the barre and in the center. These exercises, repeated slowly and with careful instruction by the instructor, teach the beginner student to master body placement, turnout of the legs and feet and the coordination of arm movements with the head. The work is both exacting and thorough by its very nature, so students who attend lessons more than once a week make greater progress and improvement than those who do not. The key lies in repeating the exercises sufficiently so that their muscle-memory as well as their brain has a chance to retain the information, and develop and flourish under the additional instruction. Children who come two times a week also find it easier to execute the work demanded of them because they become more familiar with it. In addition, they begin to understand what their teacher is looking for in their class work, and most importantly, that ultimately they must become responsible for their own progress in their lessons.

NEW! Level II Pre-Pointe Ballet & Conditioning
FRIDAY | 5:30PM-6:45PM (75 MINUTES) (Begins Friday, February 10th) | $70/MONTH (NOT included in Unlimited Pricing Packages) | AGES 13-18 | MISS RACHEL (Highly Recommended For Company Members) *Any offered classes are subject to cancellation if minimum enrollment is not met. Level 2 training in the Vaganova method is for development of strength in the legs and feet and torso by repeating the exercises from Level 1, in greater number and complexity. The pace of the lesson is still slow, however in the center, jumps (allegro work) are introduced and developed, as well as beginning barre work in certain exercises on demi-pointe. This demi-pointe work is critical to the student's stability in their core and legs and feet, preparatory to pre-pointe and pointe work. This also helps develop the leg muscles for big jumps (grand allegro) in the center work and eventually on stage. Pre-pointe work is introduced in the second half of the second class, to prepare for eventual pointe work. For these important developments to take place, lessons for level 2 should be attended at least twice a week.
