Each ballet level progressively builds on the strength and technique of the prior ballet level as dancer’s increase their experience and skill, and continue to develop as confident and capable dancers. The ballet barre combinations learned at the early levels require a high level of concentration and good memory; in the center, the dancers will build strength and work on their coordination and musicality.  At the upper levels, dancers are expected to reach a very good level of independent work. They are expected to be self-motivated and to demonstrate desire and determination for self-perfection. The technique class moves at a much faster pace than the previous levels.
