CURRICULUM and  LEVEL DESCRIPTION

The Lumiere Ballet curriculum corresponds to The Russian School which in modern terms is referred as the Vaganova Methodology. It encompasses the elegant style of the French School and the strength of the Italian School.

– Students are placed in levels by physical ability rather than age.

Classical ballet lies on 3  principles: A) The Turn Out of the legs and hips.   B)  Elevation lightness and jumps   C) Balance  stability and clarity. In accordance with these principles the technique  increases aesthetically and safely.

Children in Primary levels are taught professionally. They acquire good posture, coordination, and learn simple dance steps. This important physical and mental conditioning has proven to be an exceptional preparation for formal Ballet training. It has been leading to strong, safe and graceful technical achievement.

CODE OF CONDUCT
