Boys and girls learn basic classical ballet vocabulary together while developing the proper stance and flexibility necessary to transition into the Intermediate Levels. They continue developing musicality, expressiveness and coordination, or can enter as new students at this level. Students also gain confidence as they experience the fun of dance and learn discipline, etiquette and poise. The Elementary Level classes are offered to students 6 to 9 years old.
Elementary Level faculty members use the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus as a template for their instruction, which builds upon the foundation of our Primary Levels and prepares students for what they will learn next in the Intermediate and Advanced Levels. Our standardized curriculum provides uniform and consistent training and fosters a lifelong love of ballet.
Classes are available at The Martin Center for Nashville Ballet and the School of Nashville Ballet Brentwood Campus.
