SCHEDULE:

Classes are planned on a weekly basis with a joint commitment to developing classical ballet forms as well as contemporary and jazz techniques.  Designed for both half-day and full-day registration, each week features an optional ending block each day with a focus on a specific piece of choreography to be video-captured at the end of each week.   

While the schedule remains the same for all levels, the instruction is age appropriate with pointe blocks featuring either demi-pointe, pre-pointe or full pointe instruction.

Optional half-day programs are noted in blue/green with the optional choreography block in yellow.  While the comprehensive program is recommended to receive the full extent of the training experience, students may select half-days.  Placement in the half-day option is dependent on space availability.

Pro Arté reserves the right to modify classes based on registrations to provide a comparable experience to students to that noted above.
