Ballet Dancers

HIS Graded Technique Division is for students 9+ years old with Ballet experience, who are committed to a minimum of 3 hours of Ballet per week (2 or more classes.) Students progress through the levels at their own pace, sometimes remaining in a level for 2-3 years. Pointe begins at Level JR 2 at teacher discretion. Parents are notified first so that a family decision may be made due to the increased class requirement.
