The Children’s Division is divided into three levels: Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet, and Beginning Ballet. Placement of the students into levels is determined primarily by age. Creative Movement (ages 3 - 5) has one class each week; students in Pre-Ballet (ages 5 - 7) may register for either one or two classes each week; and Beginning Ballet (ages 7 - 8), meets three times each week.
