Performing Arts Program

The Performing Arts Program is for dancers age 5-18 who are ready to commit to a year-long experience in dance. This program runs from September-mid June, an approximately 34-week commitment to dance instruction. Students who are in this program are required to take a ballet/tap class at all levels every year. As dancers progress up the levels, jazz, modern and extra technique is added to enhance their training. At Ballare Teatro, we strive to develop strong, versatile, technically proficient, passionate dancers.

Levels are based on age first, then ability.
