TADA’s Ballet Program aims to shape students of all ages into strong, confident, skilled ballet dancers as they advance through the levels over the years. The program follows a specific ballet curriculum that is monitored and maintained by our Ballet Director, Miss Amy Leonards. Every spring, our ballet students receive their next year's ballet level based on progress and improvement throughout the year, class attendance, and work ethic. Their level is determined by their ballet instructor, along with evaluation by the Ballet Director. Students typically advance a half level per year, occasionally a whole level, depending on the aforementioned factors. Our ballet program caters to all levels of interest: recreational through pre-professional. The ballet program holds the following levels:
PreBallet 1 - Ages 5-7
PreBallet 2 - Ages 6-8
Ballet Levels 1a/1b, 2a/2b, 3a/3b, 4a/4b, 5a/5b, 6a/6b, 7a/7b, and 8a and higher - Ages 7 and up
For level placement, evaluation, syllabus and curriculum questions, please contact Miss Amy Leonards, the Ballet Director at firstname.lastname@example.org Dancers interested in more rigorous ballet training and more performance opportunities may audition for our Youth Ballet Company - scroll down for more information on YBC.
TADA’s Youth Ballet Company is for serious, highly-motivated dancers who wish to train as pre-professionals in anticipation of a future in classical and contemporary ballet. Membership is by audition only for dancers in Ballet Level 1 and higher. If accepted, YBC dancers must fulfill greater weekly ballet training requirements, and commit to regular rehearsals and performances depending on level. YBC dancers benefit not only from personal evaluations, close monitoring, and mentorship by the YBC Director, but they also enjoy many featured roles in all of TADA's ballet productions according to level.
New this fall: Pre-Professional Collegiate Program offered exclusively to YBC and Team Members ages 13+! Learn more.
