Ballet is the basis for all dance taught at Youth Ballet. We believe that a good education in ballet can benefit dancers in all forms of dance. Our Pre-Ballet Program starts at age 5 and includes both creative and technical elements. Our ballet program is based on a combination of methods and syllabi, including the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus. The curriculum is developmentally sound, and adaptable to various levels of ability.
Requirements: Previous experience and students must maintain 3 ballet classes per week. New Students please contact the office for placement.
Black or solid coloured sleeveless (scoop neck or pinch) leotard, Mondor Ballerina Pink (Color E6) tights, pale pink ballet slippers. Optional short black wrap skirt for pointe class. Pink pointe shoes with ribbons as directed by instructor. Proper attire for RAD will be determined later in the year. Hair must be worn in a bun.
Plain white T-shirt, plain black shorts or black tights, short white socks, black ballet slippers with elastics. For RAD, speak with instructor.
Maintaining regular attendance is key to the success of a student's experience at Youth Ballet Saskatchewan.
Youth Ballet of Saskatchewan is a safe and happy environment for learning dance. Teamwork is very important and dancers are expected to treat each other and their instructors with kindness and respect in and out of the studio.
Parents and Guardians have a vital role to play in the enjoyment and learning that their children experience during classes and the year–end recital at the Youth Ballet of Saskatchewan (Youth Ballet).
