Beginning Division

The Beginning Division is for young students ages three to six and includes Beginning levels A, B and C. Classes are offered by age and are carefully developed in accordance with a child’s physical and cognitive abilities. Children are placed in a safe and nurturing environment, and parents are invited to watch class during scheduled parent watch weeks. Formal auditions are not required for these levels.  Placement is at the discretion of the Ballet West Academy Director. Summer classes are available for all levels.
