Advanced Dance Program



Ages 13 and Up
 

 

At the advanced stage, our students’ bodies and minds have been prepared for hard work.  They have learned to relish that work and the joy that it brings them.

Students learn ever more intricate corps de ballet (group) work and principal roles both from the great ballets and contemporary choreography. Pas de Deux (partnering) is incorporated, and students may begin entering into competition, if they like.

 

Most advanced students take many hours of class per week, developing the endurance and long, supple muscles required for advanced study.

 

Holding an honored position within RAB, they are the pillars of the academy and are expected to lead by example, supporting our culture of inclusivity and excellence.


Classes begin on September 7th.
