Guide for New Families

New To Lebanon Ballet School?

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Lebanon Ballet School. We know in any new endeavor the hardest part can be figuring out how to get started. While there’s a lot to consider when enrolling your student in classes, we’re here to help you in making it as simple as possible.

Students enrolling in the Children and Main division are on a path of serious training. This means the student is required to advance their study yearly by taking more classes. Lebanon Ballet School ascribes to a conventionally structured system that sees dancers starting with one ballet class per week, and working up to (over several years) daily ballet classes with conditioning and/or other dance styles.

Dance Card enrollment enables dancers to pick and choose the day(s) that suit their schedule, as well as the type of dance that interest them. This means the student may explore the school’s offerings without being required to take a minimum number of classes.

Where Do I Start?

It all depends on where you’re starting from. Consider the two scenarios below.
