Beginner Classes

Have fun and learn the beautiful art of ballet as a part of Roanoke Ballet Theatre’s beginner classes!

Children’s classes include Level 1, 2 & 3 and Beg Boys Ballet.  These first year classes emphasize creative movement, expression, and a strong foundation in classical ballet techniques. Our Adult Ballet class is a beg/int level class and is for anyone 15 years or older that would like to either begin taking classes or just continue with their dancing one a week.

While no audition is required, in order to determine the appropriate level a placement class is often suggested. The age levels break down as follows:

  • Beginner Level 1 Ballet : Ages 3-4

  • Beginner Level 2 Ballet: Ages 5-6

  • Beginner Level 3 Ballet: Ages 7-11

  • Beginner Boys Ballet: 7-11

  • Adult: Ages 15+
