Pennsylvania School of the Performing Arts is known for its outstanding excellence in professional ballet training.
Technique classes range from levels 1-8 based on age and skill level. From beginner to professional our ballet lessons follow both the Vaganova and Balanchine techniques.
Classes begin with a traditional ballet barre, followed by center work and movement across the floor. Classes not only focus on building a strong ballet technique in the dancers, but also focus on musicality and performance skills as well. Class sizes are small so each student is ensured individual attention.
We also offer pre-pointe and pointe classes for students who have demonstrated the skills and strength necessary to take this step in their training. Our teachers can help evaluate if your child is ready for pointe and guide you through getting your first pointe shoes.
Classes are offered beginning from the pre-school and toddler age group all the way through high school and our most advanced levels.
