This is the cornerstone of the Ballet Society curriculum. We begin teaching children as early as age 2½ and progress them through specific skills and age-appropriate expression. From the learning of basic movement, to ballet positions, to pre-pointe and finally actual pointe work we produce young artists who often take their craft to the professional world of dance and teaching.
Our Contemporary Levels Include:
Contemporary dance combines modern, ballet, and jazz elements. A wider range of floor work is introduced in addition to quality of movement exercises. Students will gain a comprehensive vocabulary, and will be able to explore different movement through space while maintaining effective body alignment and proper technique. Classes are available for beginning through advanced dancers ages 6 and up. All students are given the opportunity to showcase their talents in a year-end performance. Those who reach a higher level of achievement may audition for our Contemporary Dance Company.
Our Contemporary Levels Include:
Jazz dance is an exciting, energetic, and athletic art form. Students work on strengthening and flexibility exercises, progressions across the floor, and center floor combinations. Students acquire an awareness of body control and alignment, musicality, fundamental style development, performance skills, and learn to execute proper jazz technique. Students will also begin to develop an extensive jazz vocabulary. Classes are available for beginning through advanced dancers ages 6 and up. All students are given the opportunity showcase their talents in a year-end performance.
Our Tap Levels Include:
This traditional form of American art is an ideal way to bring children into the experience of dance. Tap is included in our two youngest levels of classes. Tap is also offered as an individual for ages 6 and up. Performance opportunities are included in the program.
Our Hip-hop levels include:
Hip-hop dance refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. It includes a wide range of styles primarily breaking, locking, and popping which were created in the 1970s and made popular by dance crews in the United States. Our faculty also specialize in modern hip-hop techniques and we encourage students to grow in their confidence and swagitude with a fun, upbeat class environment.
Our Conditioning levels include:
A conditioning regime allows dancers the opportunity to strengthen their bodies to complement their technical and stylistic dance training and, above all, prevent injuries. Conditioning typically includes Cardiovascular Exercises, Flexibility Exercises, Strength Exercises, Core/Abdominal Work, and Arm/ Back/Leg Work while reiterating the purpose of the exercise and focusing on the execution, placement, and alignment of the body. This class will benefit any dancer wanting to enhance technique and strength by offering an understanding of how to use muscles correctly and safely.
Our Stretch levels include:
Stretch is a carefully and thoughtfully designed program for our levels 3a-8. The definition of stretch is; a form of physical exercise in which a specific muscle or tendon (or muscle group) is deliberately flexed or stretched to improve the muscle's felt elasticity and achieve comfortable muscle tone. The result is a feeling of increased muscle control, flexibility, and range of motion.
Colorado Ballet Society developed and offers this specially designed preparation program as part of our focus on health and safety for the young dancer. The curriculum for the class includes a look into history and how dancing on pointe evolved; a basic understanding of the anatomy of the foot, as well as the structure of the pointe shoe; proper foot care; and how to care for and sew ribbons and elastic onto pointe shoes. Most importantly, you will be taught theraband, Pilates, and physical therapy exercises designed to strengthen the structures of the foot and ankle, while continuing to work on placement and strengthening of the legs and core.
Pre Pointe is by invitation only to dancers that have shown physical, mental, and emotional readiness. Pre Pointe is usually begun in the summer and continues into the fall semester. Following pre pointe, dancers are put on pointe between October and January.
Currently we have no
Adult beginner classes
Currently we have no Adult beginner classes. With interest, new classes will form in Fall 2019. A minimum enrollment of 4 students is needed to form a class.
Adults with previous dance experience are sometimes able to participate in intermediate and advanced classes. A free placement session is offered to assure that each individual is properly assessed by ability and experience, with the final decision determined at the discretion of the director. A dancer's ability to execute the required material is given high consideration.
About the Free Trial Placement Class
If your dancer does NOT have dance wear, they can wear any form-fitting athletic clothing, with their hair pulled back. If they don't have the prescribed footwear for class, they may wear socks. Once they register with us, please note that we are a uniform school and they will need to purchase the proper uniform requirements.
