Curriculum

Bluegrass Youth Ballet celebrates plurality in its student population. We love diversity! In particular, we make a special effort to ensure that our ballet classes are available to all students, regardless of socioeconomic status. Students ages 7 and up have to be evaluated before they are placed in a class.

    • Creative Movement (ages 3 & 4)
      This 45 minute class meets once a week and captures the joy of dancing in the students. Using playful, creative stories and themes we begin basic ballet technique, conditioning and strengthening exercises and free form and structured group movement activities. Ballet vocabulary and class etiquette are introduced in preparation for pre-ballet.
    • Pre-Ballet (ages 5 & 6)
      Pre-Ballet classes are one hour long and meet once a week. The class more closely follows the structure of a ballet technique class, but still allows for use of the students’ imaginations. The class begins with conditioning exercises worked around a creative theme to stretch and strengthen their muscles. Students will become familiar with the use of the ballet barre as well as ballet terminology, body placement, class etiquette and musicality.
