Pre-Ballet Division (Ages 6-7)

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The curriculum of the Pre-Ballet Division is designed to be a bridge between the content and feel of the Young Children’s Division and the more traditional classical ballet format of the Elementary Division. We introduce more ballet components as we progress from 6 to 7-year-old classes and gently prepare students for Level 1 when they begin the progressive syllabus of the Elementary Division.

Pre-Ballet 6 is open to children who have turned 6 by September 1, 2024.

Pre-Ballet 7 is open to children who have turned 7 by September 1, 2024.

Our Pre-Ballet Division classes are offered at two Austin locations. The curriculum, faculty, and dress code requirements are identical at all locations.
