The training in classical ballet technique for students ages 11-13 becomes more intensive as students advance to two or three classes per week in the Middle Division. Pointe work for the girls and men’s work for the boys begin in this division. Students are encouraged to add jazz, theatre dance and/or character dance to their training program. Audition opportunities for The SRB Ensemble II and Richmond Ballet company productions such as The Nutcracker enhance the ballet training in this division.

 

New students need to be placed by The School of Richmond Ballet faculty prior to the start of the Fall session.

General Policies

  1. Parents are asked to please remain in the lobby during class times, so that the student can focus his/her entire attention on dance.

  3. Dance is a strenuous activity. The School suggests a complete physical prior to starting classes.
