At this level the students begin a stricter study of ballet with more emphasis on correct posture and placement. Much more complex combinations of steps are learned and practiced. Stamina is increased through more repetitve activities at the barre and in the center. More jumping is introduced as the student’s bones and muscles have matured. At this level, discipline and concentration is expected and enforced. This level requires a minimum of 2+ classes a week, with 3 per week recommended. More advanced student may be invited to participate in upper level classes, while continuing the more technically basic Ballet 3 classes.
