Le Croix Academy for the Performing Arts We Grow Artists
The L.C.A. Ballet Certification Program
Whether it will be your child's first experience with ballet or your child has already attained some experience, this program will benefit him/her in many ways.
First and foremost, ballet is an art form and being a member of an esteemed ballet program has many advantages. A strong focus is placed on strength and technique development, proper progression, and artistry which helps students grow into well-rounded artists who will be able to practice this art form for years to come. Whether as a hobby for excellent health or to become a professional dancer, this program will help your child achieve his/her goals.
Our ballet classes offer an enriched environment conducive to learning and our program follows a strict curriculum based on the Vaganova method which benefits and challenges every dancer - no matter what size, shape, ability/experience level, or learning style. At the completion of each level, students receive a certificate of completion from the Academy. Once all eight levels have been completed, students get to participate in a graduation ceremony celebrating their completion of the program.
Beginners, as well as those who have already received prior training, are eligible for the program and will be placed by the Ballet Mistress according to their technique level. Students must master, retain, and improve upon the skills required to progress in order to be promoted to the next level. It is estimated that it will take approximately one year/season to efficiently complete a level, however, some students require more or less time. Advancing depends on the focus, determination, and commitment of each student and requires the approval of the Ballet Mistress.
To be selected for advancement: Students in the ballet program are required to participate in a written review and perform an exam class with classmates in December and July which allows two chances per year to advance by enabling the Ballet Mistress to properly assess each individual student. Students who show proper understanding and execution of the material will receive their certificate of level completion and advance to the next level.
