Technical Advice for Teen Dancers

Dancers in Teen A & Teen B Classes

The two most important classes for dancers at this level: Classical Ballet and Jazz.

  • The purpose of the Teen Program is to re-focus on the dancer’s technical foundation, body alignment and posture in classical ballet and jazz technique; this will providing a strong foundation for continued dance education in all other genres of dance.

  • Teen Ballet is a recital class held once per week. We strongly recommend adding the Teen Ballet Technique class as a second ballet class if the dancer is serious about their training and wants to move from the Teen Level to the Intermediate levels.

  • Teen Jazz is a recital class held once per week. We strongly recommend adding the Teen Jazz Technique class as a second jazz class if the dancer is serious about their training and wants to move from the Teen Level to the Intermediate levels.

  • Teen Modern/Contemporary is a recital class and another dance genre that would be important to study at this age/level if a dancer’s goal is to be on a high school dance company (as most high school dance companies are modern based).

  • Other dance classes that are available for the teen level dancers; Acro/Tumbling, Hip-Hop and Ballroom.
