The Primary Program begins with Ballet I, a beginner class for ages 6 and 7. This fundamental class focuses on body alignment, proper external rotation from the hip, articulation of the feet, and elementary barre and center exercises. Students progress through Ballet I, II, and IIIA at the discretion of the faculty.
Students age 8 and older and enrolled in Ballet IIIA and up have the opportunity to audition for The Philadelphia Youth Ballet.
