At Ballare Teatro Performing Arts Center we have 5 programs:
- Performing Arts
- Boys Program
Our Preschool Program is a year-long program. We have three classes: Music and Movement,
Creative Dance and Pre-Ballet. Music and Movement is for our littlest dancers and their parents.
Once a child turns 3 they can register for our Creative Dance class. If your dancer is 4 by September 1 they may register for Pre-Ballet. We continue to take registration in all of
these classes all year long, as long as there are openings.
During the school year, we offer two ways for youth to study dance: the Performing Arts Program and the Recreational Program.
The Performing Arts Program is a year-long program for students who are ready for more of a commitment to dance education. All students involved in this program must be registered in a ballet/tap class during the course of the year. Students in the Fundamental Level (5-6 year olds), Level I (7-9 year olds), and Level II (10-12 year olds) may also elect to take another genre of dance, either jazz, modern or hip hop. Dancers in level III and up must take one other genre of dance in addition to their ballet/tap class. All students in the performing arts program are involved in our year end recital, and have the option of performing in our original ballet, ‘Isabella Saves the World’ or our Jazz Festival. Because students involved in this program commit to an entire year, new students are taken in these classes from September-October. After that, students will be allowed to register by permission of Ballare Teatro Director and staff.
The Recreational Program is for students age 7-teen who want to try dance, but are not ready for a year-long commitment. This program offers short sessions, and students can take whatever they desire: ballet, tap, hip hop or intro to dance. There is no performance associated with this program.
Our Adult & Professional Program offers classes in ballet, tap, jazz, modern and hip hop for the beginner-professional dancer. You may register at any time of the year for our classes. You may drop in for $15, or purchase a 10-class card for $110. Please call ahead prior to dropping into a class to check on the schedule and openings.
Summer is time for dancers to try something new. There are no prerequisites. Our short five week summer session includes week long camps and workshops, as well as weekly evening classes. There is something to fit into your busy summer schedule at Ballare Teatro Performing Arts Center.
Ballare Teatro offers Homeschool Classes by appointment. We would be happy to design a program specifically for your homeschool groups schedule, interests and budget.
