The levels of the academy are intended to be progressive; dancers are presented with increasingly challenging steps and combinations as they progress through the levels, and artistry is emphasized. All levels are taught according to the registered Classical Ballet Studies curriculum by Zoica Tovar and Andres Estevez.
Students train a minimum of 1.5 hours a week (Level 1,2,3) and up to 10+ hours a week (Levels 6 and 7). Pointe work is introduced in Level 4 and is a part of the curriculum from then on. Just like the company, the school prioritizes treating all dancers as strong athletes, all levels are given conditioning and the older students (Levels 4 and up) are given Pilates reformer classes.
Placement evaluation is required.
