2022-2023 advanced division
fall classes

Colorado Ballet Academy students in Levels 1 through our Pre-Professional Division have the extraordinary opportunity to participate in the annual full-length classical ballet production at the magnificent Ellie Caulkins Opera House in downtown Denver in May. Each class is featured in age appropriate original and adapted choreography in ballets such as Swan Lake, Coppelia and Giselle. The experience of being a part of a large-scale production gives students countless lifelong skills, an ultimate sense of accomplishment and comradery along with the thrill of telling a story through dance during Memorial Day weekend.

Ballet LEVEL 5

(Ages 12+ by placement) Training intensifies as students mature and gain more knowledge of classical ballet vocabulary. Classes focus on strengthening placement for pointe and men’s work, developing articulation of port de bras and transition steps, pirouettes, clarity of Allegro, musicality and maturing artistry. Performance is emphasized at this level and opportunities increase to include Fall Feature and First Fridays in our Black Box Theater. During this progression, students become aware of the long-term goals inherent to classical ballet training. Each student’s natural abilities are fostered, and students are encouraged to pursue their passion for dance.  

Young men’s specialized training becomes more advanced as they continue to refine the fundamentals of ballet, emphasize clarity in positions, develop core and back strength and essential foundations for men’s virtuosic technique. 

In addition to Ballet, Stretch and Condition, Pointe and Men’s class, Level 5 students’ curriculum includes Intermediate Character and Modern.  

Character Dance is the stylized representation of a traditional folk or national dance, mostly from European countries, and uses movements and music which have been adapted for the theater. Examples of Character Dance are found in full length classical ballets such as Swan Lake, Coppelia, and Sleeping Beauty. Level 5 Character will strengthen the fundamentals of this style with emphasis on positions, dynamic movement and musicality.  

Level 5 Modern will build on the techniques of Limon, Horton and Graham as students continue to explore composition and improvisation. Character and Modern classes culminate with a performance at the end of each semester. 

Students in this level are eligible to participate in Colorado Ballet Academy’s Youth America Grand Prix and Denver Ballet Guild programs.
