Year-Round Ballet Classes

Enroll in one of our year-round ballet classes offered at the Conservatory of Classical Ballet, located in San Leandro, California. We offer classes for children as young as 3 1/2 as well as teens and adults.

Pre-ballet Division

Pre-ballet is divided into two age groups to accommodate the rapidly changing developmental abilities of each age: 3 1/2 to 4 and 5 to 6. Students may register to attend class once or twice a week. The classes are 45 minutes long.

Pre-ballet classes include floor stretches, primary ballet positions and exercises, traveling steps, learning right from left, taking turns, practice dancing as a group as well as individually, practice leading and following the group, and creative free dance. Weekday and weekend classes are available.


Beginning Ballet (Ages 7–12)

Beginning ballet is a one-hour basic class. It is perfect for the "first-time dancer", graduating pre-ballet students not quite ready for the commitment of student division level I, or students whose schedule only allows for one class a week. Wednesday and Saturday classes are available.

Student Division

The student division consists of five levels for ages 7 to 21. Students attend a required number of classes each week, which gradually build in length, difficulty, and number as they progress. New students are carefully placed according to age and previous dance experience. All students are evaluated at mid-term and year-end and promoted accordingly. Average time spent in each level is one to three years. All students are encouraged to perform in our semi-annual theater performances, and some are selected for additional performances at local festivals and demonstrations.

 

Adult & Teen Classes

The adult and teen classes are continuous, and new students may register at any time. Introduction to ballet through professional levels is available weekdays (mornings and evenings) and Saturdays. We also offer pointe classes, special workshops, and performance opportunities for all levels.
