SYLLABUS & CURRICULUM
The comprehensive BAE syllabus was created by Darla Hoover and is based on the teachings of Marcia Dale Weary. The syllabus is designed to develop technically strong, expressive ballet dancers, who ultimately can adapt to any style.
The Pre-Professional Ballet Division consists of nine levels. Each student is evaluated by the BAE faculty and placed into the level where she/he will benefit most from their classes.
The curriculum includes technique, pointe, partnering, variations, stretch, men’s weight training, modern and character.
