Junior Ballet Program
Our Junior ballet program welcomes students from age 4 and up. Based on the 8 levels of the Vaganova method, this program is designed for the child who dances 1-2 times weekly, who pursues ballet as a fun, fulfilling and personal interest. Here at RBA, we believe not only in every dancer's potential in mastering clean and beautiful technique through the Vaganova method, we also value building self-esteem in every child, encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone one step at a time. Classes are structured so that formal ballet technique is taught at an age-appropriate level, with clear progression, exams and performances. Putting on successful performances on stage in front of an audience and achieving goals in exams help children develop self-confidence, self-expression, resilience, teamwork, focus and many more benefits that go beyond picking up new skills. Dancing here at Russian Ballet Academy, your child will not only have the distinct qualities of a well-trained dancer, but they will also exude poise, confidence and a true enjoyment of the arts.
