Main Division (10+)

Main Division

The Main Division at Lebanon Ballet School is for boys and girls, ages 10 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.

Floor barre conditioning is incorporated in all of the Main Division classes. This will improve technique and performance by strengthening the body’s core, balance, and alignment and flexibility. The result is greater movement without tension, better plies, higher jumps with less effort, tighter turns, and improved extension and turnout.

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

The Lebanon Ballet School year consists of 35 weeks of instruction, beginning the week of September 7, 2021 and concluding on June 3, 2022.
