Ballet Classes For Ages
8-11

No Snootiness allowed  : )

Ballet classes for kids: Children's ballet I & II in our 2018 dance recital. American Dance Institute is well known for excellence in dance instruction. Notice how confident they are in their choreography. Not one is looking to a teacher in the wings for instruction. This is the quality difference.                   

In addition to the Ballet classes for children ages 8-11 on this page, American Dance Institute offers a comprehensive selection of adult ballet classes, ballet classes for ages 5-7, ballet & tap dance combo classes for ages 5-7, ballet for ages 12-14, and ballet classes for teenagers.

  • Ballet I.5: For students who have had 4-6 months of recent ballet training.
  • Ballet II: Have been studying ballet recently and or consistently for a year of more.
  • Intermediate: An intermediate is fairly accomplished dancer who is well versed in ballet movement vocabulary and has the ability to learn complicated ballet combinations readily.
