Open Class for TEENS FAQ’s

Do I need to enroll or sign up ahead of time?

Not at all, as this is an open program. Simply come to the class when you’d like and sign in at that time. Your first time taking class will only involve completing a one-page basic information form. Students under 18 will need a parent/guardian present to complete the form.

dress code

For ladies, ballet slippers (any style or color), leotard, and pink tights. You may wear jazz shorts over your leotard and tights if you like (but no baggy shorts).  Ladies need to have their hair in a bun, neat and off the face.

For men, ballet slippers (any style or color), white fitted t-shirt, and black tights or a knitted legging. Men also need to have their hair off the face as well. For men that wear tights, a dance belt is required.


Level definitions

Intermediate: Technical proficiency and sufficient knowledge of ballet terminology is required to fully enjoy the Intermediate level.  If the student desires to join the Beginning Pointe class, the student needs permission from the faculty.

Teen students, without experience, are welcome to join this class and faculty will provide simpler steps and combinations.
