National Ballet Institute for the Arts

Three Divisions of Study  

  • Children’s Division 

    is designed for students aged 3-13 with classes offered in Creative Movement through Cecchetti Grade 4.  Beginning with Kinder Ballet at age 3, children explore music, rhythm, and movement.  Energy, vitality, and imagination are nurtured and used to explore movement as muscular and learning skills and creativity are developed.   Entering into the graded syllabus with Grade 1, students will learn the basic classical technique and vocabulary.  Also during this time, discipline, consistency, and commitment become the prerequisite for progress.  Pointe work is introduced at the instructor’s discretion when the students are both technically and physically strong and emotionally mature enough for the responsibility.  Classes in technique and theory are supplemented by theater arts and stretch classes.
  • Professional Division (Includes Teachers Training Course)

    is open to serious students contemplating a professional career in ballet.  The professional division emphasizes consistency, commitment, and performance quality.  Classes are offered from Cecchetti - Vaganova;  Elementary through Diploma in technique, pointe, variation, pas de deux, modern and theory, supplemented by theater arts and stretch classes.
  • Teen / Adult Division

    offers classes for all levels from beginning through advanced.  This division is for teenagers and adults who are not pursuing a professional dance career, but still desire to experience classes in ballet.  This excellent source of exercise develops physical and mental control while at the same time provides a release of tension and exposure to a highly aesthetic art form.  In addition to technique classes, a stretch class designed for the needs of the adult body is also offered.
