Ages: 13-18 years old
The School of Mystic Ballet’s – Ballet Division provides a comprehensive ballet and dance education.
Upon graduation from the Pre-Professional Program, students have mastered a thorough knowledge of the classical ballet vocabulary while gaining supplemental training in Modern & Contemporary, Jazz & Hip Hop, Musical Theater, Character, and other electives, resulting in a well-rounded dance education.
In addition to developing strong technique, students gain valuable life skills such as self-discipline and motivation, creativity, increased critical thinking, confidence and self-esteem.
Mystic Ballet’s Pre-Professional Program has a track record for training successful students who are able to pursue higher dance/academic education at college or universities on a scholarship basis.
Students placed in Grade 5 – 7 have shown they have the discipline and determination to commit to a serious ballet program as well as having the required technical ability and physical strength.
Progression to the next level is based on the student’s mastery of the vocabulary and the physical understanding of the syllabus in their current Grade. Since students’ progress at different rates this may be a one or more year process.
Students (Grade 5 – 7) attend class 5 – 12 hours per week, depending on the Grade. Ballet Technique and Pointe, with Variations, Jazz and Modern starting in Grade 5, comprise the core curriculum of the School.
Students attending Mystic Ballet’s Pre-Professional Program and Mystic Ballet’s Summer Intensive may be accepted to Mystic Ballet’s Jr. Company. Junior Company dancers have opportunity to participate in additional performances throughout the year, with opportunities to perform with the Mystic Ballet Company.
