SUMMER SESSION    JUNE 26 – JULY 29, 2017

Lower Division

The Lower Division features four levels of ballet instruction for students 8.5-12 years of age.

Advancement through the Lower Division is based on a  student’s level of skill and accomplishment, not his or her age.  The School’s faculty evaluates and places each student in the appropriate level.

Students in the Lower Division attend  ballet classes that incorporate barre and center work and have the option of adding Jazz, Modern, Theatre Dance and Character Dance classes.

Students of the School of Richmond Ballet should continue in their current level from the 2017 spring semester unless otherwise instructed by faculty.  New students, with previous training, need to be placed by School of Richmond Ballet faculty prior to the start of the summer session.

Lower I

Child must be required age for Lower Level by May 1. Lower Division students are required to take classes twice a week.
