2014-2015 Lower Division Academy Program – ages 7-12

Students enter the Classical Ballet Theatre Lower Division at age 7 to begin their formal, age appropriate study of classical ballet in an encouraging setting that works cohesively with a young person's growing body. The curriculum encourages and empowers the young student's artistic expression while emphasizing technique, strength, coordination and stamina. Each level of training in the Lower Division has its own curriculum goals and age appropriate progression. Students are placed according to knowledge, ability and potential. Lower Division students are also eligible and encouraged to perform in the Classical Ballet Theatre's spectacular performance of The Nutcracker.

Students are promoted to the next level when they have successfully mastered their current level of study.

Students New to CBT must audition for this program. To schedule your audition please contact Kim Brummett at 703-471-0750 or info@cbtnva.org.
