Main Division

Levels 1 and Level 2 focus on ballet training that continues to develop their basic understanding of ballet technique. Students continue learning the basic ballet positions, the progression of barre exercises to center exercise, and learning the French vocabulary that defines all ballet steps.

Once the student has learned the ballet technique for Level 1 and when the student's body is strong enough to perform the movements taught, then at the discretion of the Artistic Directors and teaching staff, the student may be asked to move to the next level. Level 2 is a more advanced level where more intricate steps and combinations are introduced by the teaching staff. Advancing to the next level is based on ability, not age. Those who have achieved proper technique may qualify to participate in Pre-pointe or Pointe, in addition to the regular technique classes. Typically each level is a two year level.

 

Performance experience is an integral part of a dancer's training at WFYB. We will have an annual Spring Performance that the children can participate in. We encourage the students to audition in September for the company, WFBT.
