Level I classes are 60 minutes long and they meet once a week. The class more closely follows the structure of a ballet technique class.

Students will use the ballet barre and will learn ballet vocabulary. Body placement and alignment will be discovered. Class etiquette is part of the classroom practice and expectation. This class focuses on Musicality and how movements correspond with the music. Small jumps and exercises across the floor will be practiced building strength and endurance.
