Ballet Classes at Central Utah Ballet

Central Utah Ballet offers several ballet programs, including a toddler / preschool ballet program, children’s ballet, junior and senior company, adult classes, and private or semi-private lessons.

Pre-Ballet – Toddler/Preschool Ballet Class

We love teaching toddlers and preschoolers ballet classes at Central Utah Ballet Academy. We offer pre-ballet classes for students 3-6 years old. These programs are once a week and teach ballet basics. They also help children foster a genuine passion for dance.

While many ballet studios put their least experienced teachers in charge of the toddler or preschool ballet programs, at Central Utah Ballet, your child will be taught by studio owner and director, Jennie Creer-King. Jennie is a highly-experienced, award-winning instructor. This is because Central Utah believes in establishing a great foundation and experience with ballet from the get-go. While your child may not decide to become a professional ballerina, what they learn in their ballet class will last them a lifetime!

Children’s Ballet Program

Central Utah Ballet offers five levels of children’s ballet classes. The first three levels are divided by age, while levels 4 and 5 are by audition only. These classes are a great way to progress your child’s love and passion for ballet in a setting that best fits their age and experience. Our children’s ballet classes are taught by exceptional ballet instructors. Each has years of experience not only in pre-professional and professional ballet, but also education and experience in teaching, pedagogy, choreography, and more.

Our children’s ballet program has a classically based ballet curriculum that builds upon previous-learned concepts for a solid foundation on which your child may learn and grow. This is beneficial not only for teaching strong ballet technique, but also in helping your child learn essential skills that will help them learn and grow for the rest of their lives.

Pre-Professional Ballet Training Program

We also offer a pre-professional ballet trainee program that simulates a college or professional ballet experience. This program includes not only essential classical ballet technique, but also pointe, additional dance variations such as contemporary and modern, and lifelong learning opportunities, including nutrition and resume-building.

The pre-professional program is an excellent choice for advanced students who are seeking educational opportunities such as scholarships and college dance programs, as well as those who would like to pursue a career in dance. Most of our instructors have not only excelled in these opportunities themselves, but have also helped previous students achieve these goals.
