Our Grade 5/6 students partake in two 1 hr classes a week – a ‘Level 1’ class and a ‘ level 2’ class. These two levels focus on different aspects of Classical Ballet.
Classes at this level continue to introduce new exercises of Classical Ballet technique with extended development of musicality, dance steps, harmonious coordination and improvisation. These classes are at the following locations:
Students study Level 1 as a pre-requisite for Level 2.
Take an additional weekly special technique class. Level 2 students must complete Grade Four studies at Level 2.
Students continue to strengthen and develop their classical ballet technique with the introduction of turns and are prepared for their yearly grade examination. All Grade 5/6 Level 2 students participate in the major ballet production.
