Ballet Pensacola

Explore. Move. Grow.

The Ballet Pensacola children’s syllabus capitalizes on children’s naturally occurring cognitive and physical development while helping them acquire additional motor, cognitive and social skills. The syllabus is specifically shaped around the format of traditional ballet classes for older students.

Children’s Division

Instead of a totally free form class, the Ballet Pensacola Academy syllabus provides children with the opportunity to experience a warm-up and center barre and across-the-floor activities, just like the structure of a traditional ballet class. Children explore monthly objectives such as musicality, movement concepts, and classroom etiquette and also have the opportunity for free dance expression at the end of the lesson.

The monthly objectives may incorporate important subjects such as:

  • Classroom Etiquette
  • Musical Awareness
  • Relationships to Others
  • Dances from Other Countries
  • Body Awareness
  • Expressing Emotion Through Movement
  • Relationship to Working Space and the Stage
  • Pantomime
  • Performance Skills

These objectives are posted each month to foster discussion with family after class time. Students will move seamlessly into the Training Division at age 7, and parents can be assured that students have been provided with the best training available.

Tap/Jazz

Students from age 3 will enjoy more diversified movement with tap and jazz. New students are placed in class by age as of September 1, 2016. Students must be enrolled in Creative Dance or Pre-Ballet to enroll in Tap/Jazz for their age group. Those interested in just Tap or Jazz may consider enrollment in the Community Division.
