INTERMEDIATE DIVISION
at our Thanksgiving Point Campus

ABOUT | The Intermediate Division is designed for students ages 10 and up. Acceptance and placement is determined by an audition held before the new fall season, or an audition can be arranged with the Ballet West Academy director.  Promotions are considered on an individual basis and determined in part by an examination demonstrated at the end of the school year and an evaluation by the Ballet West Academy principal. Students in this division can expect to spend more than one year in each level.

Students perform in the Ballet West Academy Spring Production. Students in this division are expected to participate in the Ballet West Academy summer pre-intensive dance camp. Summer camp affords the student the opportunity to take multiple classes several days per week. Ballet technique, pre-pointe, boys, classical variations, jazz, modern, conditioning, ballet history and stagecraft are some examples of summer camp classes.

INTERMEDIATE D | Placement by Audition

Upon completing the essential requirements of training and successfully demonstrating appropriate skill level and maturity, students are ready for a more intense and challenging course of study in Intermediate D. Female students at this level must show a structural capacity for pointe work and all students must possess ample strength and stamina.  All of the classes in our comprehensive curriculum are designed to best provide the skills necessary to pursue a career in dance. We believe in a healthy and nurturing approach to the development of each student. As the level of difficulty increases, so does the passion for the pursuit for excellence. As a result, every student’s advancement through the program is based on their ability rather than their age.
