Tech I
Tech I & II students will begin to learn the traditional barre exercises in a technically sound and age-appropriate manner. Barre exercises transfer to the center floor work where students begin to connect what they learn at the barre with the movements they will be executing in the center. Teachers guide students to develop a greater awareness of technique, musicality, and dancing with others to create a performance. Ballet class etiquette is reinforced. Conditioning exercises are included in classwork to increase strength and flexibility. Tech I & II is a two-year program designed to prepare students for Intermediate and girls for beginner pointe work.

Intermediate
Students have now learned the foundation of barre exercises and will begin slowly increasing the complexity with a focus on proper technical execution. Sound technical fundamentals continue to be a priority. Dancers will begin introductory pointe work at the discretion of the faculty. Basic pointe work includes learning how to prepare the shoes for dancing and developing strength in the feet, ankles, legs, core and upper body with exercises on two feet facing the barre. When students are ready, they will begin simple center work with releves (rises on to full pointe) on two feet. Pointe classes are introduced at 30 minutes and increase in length and frequency in subsequent years as students gain strength for more complex movements. Intermediate is a two-year program to prepare for Advanced.

To reach Level 1, a gymnast must complete a floor routine with a forward and backward roll, cartwheel, split jump, and a three-quarter handstand.

On beam, the gymnast must complete a jump to front support mount, stretch jump, 30-degree arabesque, lever, stretch jump, and dismount by way of cartwheel to three-quarter handstand.

The vault requirements are a basic stretch jump onto the mat, a kick up into a handstand, and a fall to flat back

On the bars, gymnasts must be able to do a cast, pullover, and back hip circle. For the dismount, they have the option of doing an underswing or a sole circle.

Level 2 Requirements
Level 2 floor requirements include a round-off and backward roll. Gymnasts must do a handstand and hold it for at least one second.

For the beam, gymnasts must jump to front support mount, stretch jump, lever, and arabesque as in Level 1. They must also complete a half-pivot turn and a more complicated dismount: a cartwheel to side handstand.

For the vault, gymnasts have to do a jump to a handstand from the mat stack and a fall to a flat back.

The bar routine must include a cast, pullover, and back hip circle, just as in Level 1. It must also include a mill circle, leg cut, and single-leg basket swing. The dismount can be an underswing as before, or, for more ambitious gymnasts, a squat to pike sole-circle.
