ARKA Ballet Academy 

THE ACADEMIC PROGRAM offers classes in a variety of dance forms. The Ballet syllabus is based on the Vaganova Method of teaching Classical Ballet. The legendary Russian School is famous for its superb technique and pure style of performance. The distinguished faculty features experienced teachers who have enjoyed successful careers in dance.

 

The curriculum consists of Pre-Ballet Training, Classical Ballet Technique, Pointe Class, Variation Class, Character Dance, Contemporary, Progressive Ballet Technique (PBT), Partnering etc. 

The unique preparatory program was developed for students age 5 - 7. As the Preparatory Level students progress, they will continue their study in the Academic division to get prepared for the Pre-Professional Training. 

The students will have the opportunity to perform classical and contemporary repertoire on stage in the School's Winter and Spring productions. Additionally, there will be opportunities to travel, compete, and perform in various international ballet competitions. This program makes it possible for Pre-Professional level students to receive scholarships to many renowned ballet schools and professional ballet companies.

 

The Pre-Professional Division:

The Pre-Advanced Level (8-11) will allow students to enhance their ballet technique to the next level. The program for these ages is full of other classes, including PBT, that will help to build our young dances to perform longterm in their ballet career. Also, they will learn Contemporary Ballet, Variations, Pointe/Pre-Pointe etc. 

 

The Advanced Level (12-18)  prepares these talented students to become professional dancers, find jobs in ballet companies, receive scholarships. Our main goal is to build confidence inside and out and prepare our students for their professional ballet career.                      

 

Each June the School's Summer Intensive Workshop offers students the unique opportunity to study other forms of dance and work with distinguished professional dance instructors from around the world.
