Ballet for Homeschool Students

Ages 5-18
Classes Run August 1, 2022 – May 26, 2023

Southwest Ballet Theatre is pleased to offer midday ballet classes to homeschool students. Students will learn in a positive, nurturing, and developmentally sound environment. Although similar to our afternoon classes, these classes are structured as open-ballet classes in order to better suit homeschool families’ flexible schedules. Families can choose the drop-in rate or a monthly tuition and may utilize their Empowerment Scholarship Accounts for payment.

Primary Ballet will include creative movement concepts and early ballet technique. Primary students will develop the focus and listening skills needed to thrive in a classroom setting. The barre will not be utilized during this phase of development to aid the dancer in cultivating balance, strength, coordination, and proprioceptive skills.

Beginning Ballet is a formal introduction to classical ballet technique. Students engage in ballet vocabulary, theory, and kinesthetic principles; learn to use their bodies correctly to prevent injury; and build strength, stamina, coordination, discipline, and grace.

All students may participate in the year end Showcase (no additional fee required). Other performance opportunities may be available for students to develop a deeper appreciation of theatre and the ballet art form.
