COVID-19 update: The safety of our students, families, and faculty is of paramount importance. In accordance with the latest CDC guidelines, as of June 1 all fully vaccinated students will have the option to not wear a mask while in class. All adults who are not vaccinated must continue to wear their masks until further notice. Thank you for your support of our new mask policy. Temperature checks and health screening will still be done to protect you and our staff.
In addition, we have installed special REME Halo Air Purifiers in order to further protect our students and staff. This unique air purification system works to limit the spread of viral particles.

ADULT CLASS LEVELS
For those students who have had some basic ballet experience but would like to learn in a class that is taught slowly. Ideal for those returning to ballet after a break.
For those students who have already attended Absolute Beginner or have some previous experience and would like to start ballet again after a break. Class will begin at the barre and students will develop their ballet vocabulary and coordination through simple combinations in the centre, along with the concepts of turning and jumping.
A more challenging class for students who have attended Level 1 or have had at least two to three years of prior ballet experience. Barre work includes balances in all positions, turning, and incorporating port de bras. Centre work includes the use of the body directions in combinations, with the beginnings of grand allegro (large traveling jumps).
The highest level of ballet offered at The Sarasota Ballet School. Barre and centre combinations are more complex, combining more elements and incorporating different musical accents and rhythm. The class will cover all centre work from tendu through to grand allegro and is taught at a faster pace with more combinations of steps. Students must take this class to be eligible for the adult pointe class.
Pointe (not offered virtually due to safety)
Students who are able to complete an Level 3 class or who have previous experience are eligible for pointe work. Pointe work is mainly at the barre, with combinations using both one and two feet. Students are advised to talk to teachers first to see if they are ready for pointe work.
