Training Program - Level 5

Dancers must be recommended for promotion from Training Program Level 4. Students take at least five ballet technique and pointe lessons per week, plus have twice weekly stretch class and contemporary dance class. They also have performance opportunities four times per year.

Dancers must make alternative schooling arrangements since Level 5 classes are scheduled during the day, between 1:00-4:45pm. Many dancers attend school on-site through our Academic Conservatory, but dancers may also homeschool, enroll in online school, or make early dismissal arrangements with a traditional school.

Dancers must have permission of the Artistic Director confirming they have successfully mastered the concepts presented in Level 4. New students with previous experience must be evaluated by the Artistic Director before enrolling. Please email mcleish@projectballet.org to schedule an evaluation.

Level 5 dancers must attend at least three weeks of our full-day summer intensive program, or seek equivalent training at an approved outside summer intensive program.
