Committed to preserving the art of classical ballet, enriching the community through the beauty of ballet, and impacting young lives through the discipline of dance
All ballet classes are taught following the Ruth C. Petrinovic syllabus. The syllabus was designed to carefully develop dancers using principles of kinesiology and physics, and draws from the heritage of the Vaganova, Cecchetti and RAD schools. The faculty participates in ongoing teacher training, meeting regularly to discuss curriculum and teaching strategies.
Advancement through the Lower, Middle and Upper Divisions is based on a student’s level of skill and accomplishment, not his or her age. The school’s faculty evaluates and places each student in the appropriate level.
Students in Lower, Middle and Upper Divisions have the opportunity to perform in The Nutcracker and other Florida Classical Ballet Theatre performances.
The year end performances are presented by all Esther Center students to showcase our students’ talent and yearly progress for parents, relatives and friends.
