Intermediate Level

Intermediate dancers have learned how to concentrate, and the basis of a good work ethic has been set into place. This frees the dancer to progress into consistent use of correct placement. When the student is ready, introductory classes in pointe are introduced, and ballet vocabulary is increased. Increased strengthening of the feet, legs, abdomen, and back is a focus, plus more difficult ballet enchainment is incorporated.
