What class(es) should I sign up for?

Check out the "Styles" tab to see descriptions of our classes! Email us at northwestballetcenter@gmail.com to confirm what levels will be the best match.

**New Dancers: Ages listed are just for a base reference. Must have turned the listed age before the start of the dance year (September) to register. Final placements (if needed) will be made during the first few classes.

**Returning Dancers: Dancers typically stay in the same level for a full dance year (September-June), regardless of age. Unless there is a noticeable difference in levels (from the studio's eyes) classes tend to move levels together. It is also not uncommon for dancers to stay in a level for more than one year. Levels all depend on the demographic of dancers we have enrolled each year.

What should I wear to my Ballet class?

All dancers are required to wear ballet shoes (pink is the most worn color, but black, white, and skin tone colors are acceptable as well). Teachers may require a certain color for recitals.

Males: We prefer fitted athletic tops and bottoms. However, as long as your teacher can see what your body is doing without excess clothing in the way, most to all athletic clothing will suffice. More "traditionally" a solid white shirt and black tights or bottoms will also work!

Females: Leotard and tights (your choice of style and color)! Ballet/wrap skirts are optional. For upper levels, teachers may allow other styles of athletic wear during class time.

All dancers must wear jazz shoes (black or tan) to each class. Teachers may require a certain color for recitals.

All dancers must have a pair of pirouette half sole shoes or dance paws for each class. These particular footwear allow for us to dance as if we have no shoes on, but doesn't hurt our feet.
