Training Division

The Ballet Pensacola Training Division provides formal dance training for students beginning at age 7.

2017-18 Registration is now open! Classes begin August 14, 2017. The class schedule is listed below or you can download the season brochure HERE. Download the registration form HERE.

 

The Training Division is syllabus-driven, taking students through a graduated system of study that encompasses classical ballet, contemporary movement, and jazz technique. Each new level of training demands further commitment and physicality from the students. Training Division classes are led by Ballet Mistress Christine Duhon and are taught by the highly qualified faculty of Ballet Pensacola. Students must be age 7 by September 1, 2017 to enter Tech 1. Older students with prior experience will take an evaluation class to determine appropriate class placement.

Student Performance Opportunities

Student Showcase

Fully registered students may perform in the Ballet Pensacola Dance Showcase. An $80 production fee, which covers the cost of costumes and other incidentals, is charged to all students appearing in the showcase. For students appearing in multiple performances, a $45 costume fee will be charged for each additional performance.

Youth Ensemble

Fully registered students in Tech 5 and above may audition for Ballet Pensacola’s Youth Ensemble. Under the direction of Ballet Mistress Christine Duhon, the Youth Ensemble may have the opportunity to perform in main stage productions as well as its own performances. The Youth Ensemble provides an excellent opportunity for company-bound dancers to develop their technique and stagecraft prior to encountering the rigors of full company responsibilities.

Performing Company

Training Division students that are fully registered in Tech 6 or above are eligible to audition for Ballet Pensacola’s performing company. Company dancers may be asked to appear in performances and outreach events, including all main stage performances. Company activities are extracurricular to training schedules.
