Youth Enrichment Program Ages 6-11

Designed for dancers ages 6 through 11, our Enrichment Program offers students an engaging program of dance study exploring more in-depth training of ballet and modern dance.

Students in the Enrichment Program attend 2 ballet classes and 1 contemporary class per week. The Enrichment Program is taught by our dedicated and qualified faculty and follows the Alberta Ballet School curriculum that is proven to be highly effective in the development of safe and technically proficient dancers. Students continue to develop the fundamentals of ballet and dance technique while exploring the joy of movement and developing musical and artistic appreciation. In addition to the Alberta Ballet School curriculum students will learn and develop material in the Cecchetti method and may work towards completing an examination through Cecchetti Canada.

Students in the Enrichment Program also have the option to add an additional ballet class which is a great way to enhance their program and training. Students are encouraged to register for the optional Jazz and/ or PBT (Progressive Ballet Technique) Classes to help gain strength and flexibility.

Dancers in the Enrichment Program will gain confidence and self-discipline in a warm, welcoming environment that fosters a lifelong love of dance, music and the arts. Previous dance experience may be required for some levels of the Enrichment Program, we encourage interested students to contact us to ensure we can find the level and program that will best suit your needs.
