Main Division

The Main Division at Lebanon Ballet School is for boys and girls, ages 9 and up. Instruction is based on knowledge of classical training with each level building upon the previous. Placement is determined by age, physical strength, development, and experience.

Students in this Division are required to take two or more classes per week (see specific requirements below).
