* Placement in ballet is based on ability and not age. Therefore, the teachers may shift a dancer between Ballet 1, 2 and 3 (beginner, intermediate and advanced) once they have had a chance to observe their ability and decide what class will best strengthen their dancing. Ballet 4 Advanced/Pointe class is geared for dancers who have had adequate ballet experience to get up on pointe and participate in the class. Ballet Technique classes are purely technique classes for those who are interested in strengthening their fundamentals of ballet. Ballet 4 and Ballet Technique are not offered during the 2020-21 season.

** Participation in these classes is by invitation only. For existing SonDance dancers, invitations were extended in the spring. For new dancers to the studio, teachers will extend invitations in October, after a time to observe students and ascertain interest. At registration, please indicate your desire to participate on the competition team. To participate in comp teams, dancers must take the underlying dance discipline class, the technique class and in some cases, ballet.

Adult Classes

SonDance loves adults! We believe that dance is good exercise and each class becomes a close community of people who enjoy and look forward to class each week.
