BACK-TO-SCHOOL

 

DRESS CODE

In a classical ballet classroom, everything is designed for a purpose. One of those things is dress code. This aids the teacher in seeing at a glance the training needs of each student. This involves correction from head to toe so that the students may reach their personal best by getting immediate feedback, which otherwise would be difficult to provide. It also gives students an environment where they will learn discipline, respect, and self-confidence.

All attire may be purchased at our local dance store Strictly Workout Wear, or online at Discount Dance.

HAIR TUTORIALS

These hairstyles are Temecula Ballet approved hairstyles for class. PBT class students must wear their hair in a high bun. 

CLASS REQUIREMENTS

Students must be placed into a level by taking a placement test prior to registering for classes.

 

Temecula Ballet recommends looking through the Class Schedule to choose classes first, and then locate them in the drop-down menu in the Parent Portal. Please look through the required and suggested classes below before choosing classes for your student(s):

 

Beginning Ballet — 1-2 ballet classes (required), Beginning Character, Beginning Acro

Level I-A — 2 ballet classes (required), Beginning Character, Beginning Acro

Level I-B — 2 ballet classes (required), PBT® (required), Character 1 (required), Acro 1

Level II — 3 ballet classes (required), Character 2 (required), and PBT®, Acro 1

Level III — 3 ballet classes (required), Character 2 (required), and PBT®, Contemporary, and Jazz

Level IV — 4-5 ballet classes (required), Character 3 (required), PBT®, Contemporary, and Jazz

 

Students who are unable to meet the class requirement for their level will be considered part of the Elective Dance Program and not take part in our Academy Level Curriculum. This is not discouraged, but may prevent advancement to higher levels. Students in the Elective Dance Program are not guaranteed to move up a level, go en pointe, or stay with their age group. Enrolling your student in the required classes to be in the Academy Level Curriculum ensures that your student will progress and grow as a dancer.
