BYB Fall 2022 Class Schedule

Our program’s placements are determined by technique, physical development, current age development, and experience with our curriculum. While age is a consideration for placement, our highly experienced and quality educated faculty place students where they will be most successful in dance with physical, emotional, and social health at the highest priority. We are not a competitively driven environment. We are a quality instruction and appropriately developed, driven environment.

We require new students ages 8 and older, and students that are returning after taking time off, to complete an evaluation with one of our staff members before enrolling in our Elementary, Intermediate, or Pre-Professional levels. You can contact Julie at enrollment@bluegrassyouthballet.org for more information.

Non-Refundable Annual Registration Fee per dancer: $35 – due at time of registration

Sibling Discount: 15% for the second sibling, 10% for each additional sibling
(applies to tuition and registration fees)

Semester Tuition payment plans include: Pay in Full by August 15th or Pay in 4-Installments
Tuition Assistance is available.  Email Caroline at info@bluegrassyouthballet.org for more information

Primary Division FALL 2022


Creative Movement (Pre-School aged child; 3-4 years old)

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 techniques, conditioning and strengthening exercises, and free-form and structured group movement activities.
Ballet vocabulary and class etiquette are introduced in preparation for pre-ballet.

One class per week    $250 per semester

Tuesday 4:30 pm – 5:15 pm

Wednesday 4:00 pm – 4:45 pm

Pre-Ballet (ages 5-7 years old)

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.

Some take it because they love the art. Some take it to understand and to help their children with their dance education. Our adult classes are planned for the level of the attendees, so it might change from time to time. We love our adult students and encourage anyone to try it. Adults don’t have a dress code.
