BALLET

Ballet classes are structured to develop technique, strength, and musicality. We offer a classical technique for all students through various structured exercises. Ballet classes are traditionally organized, including stretching, barrework, port de bras, adagio, pirouettes, petite and grand allegro. Students are also offered the opportunity to choreograph short dances during various holiday classes. The techniques and skills begun in the fall are built on throughout the course of the year.

At City Ballet Raleigh, we recognize the difficulty that boys have in taking up ballet. Given the important role that men play, we are offering all boys who are curious about learning the art-form a special Ballet scholarship. Enrolling in a year of ballet will be tuition-free for all boys who can make the commitment to attend classes and participate seriously with our dedicated and focused students. Additionally, tuition for a Saturday Boys Only technique class will be waived with participation in another Ballet class. Please note that the scholarship does not apply to other classes or non-recital ballet classes. Registration and performance fees additional. The scholarship may be revoked if class participation does not meet the standards expected by City Ballet Raleigh.
