This program is recommended for students over the age of 12, with at least three (3) consecutive years of ballet experience. This is all taken into consideration, but the final recommendations are at the Director’s discretion.
  • Bravo Dance Bravo Dance Co. offers dancers who want to move into pointe the opportunity to begin strengthening their ankles and technique before going up onto pointe and performing with our Pointe class. This class is designed to help those who aren’t quite ready for full pointe work to progress and reach the level needed to participate in the pointe class and to perform on stage. Pre-Pointe does not perform, and therefore, does not require a costume. Pointe will perform at the discretion of the Director.

COMPETITIVE VS RECREATIONAL CLASSES **PLEASE SEE NOTES ABOUT NEW POLICIES!!

Bravo Dance Co. will be offering recreational classes for all genres this season. These classes are designed for the dancer who does not wish to participate in competitions in the spring. With that said, ALL other classes marked above with an (*) WILL BE competitive at the instructor’s discretion. Please see the special notes regarding new policies regarding competitive dancers this season.

** Competitive dancers will not be permitted to perform with their team/group if they have any unexcused absences after January 1st. All absences must be communicated and permitted by the instructor. Permission will not be unreasonably withheld - we just need to know if students will be absent to plan accordingly.

** ALL competitive dancers, with the exception of those who only participate in Hip Hop, will be required to take a ballet class, or a NEW technique class. Ballet is the foundation for all dance, and is fundamental to a dancer's success, especially as we begin to commit to being a competitive team. Technique classes will not perform a dance routine, thus will not require a costume, etc. Technique class is a discounted class, as competition is a financial commitment already, we do not want to impose a burden.

BRAVO DANCE CO. SOLO/DUET PROGRAM

Interest in performing a Solo/Duet/Trio can be expressed at time of registration, but instructors will have the final decision this season. An additional performance is a time and energy commitment, and should be seen as a privilege. In order to be eligible students must be enrolled in a group class in the same genre as the preferred solo/duet. This allows technique to be strengthened in class time while the solo/duet class times are used solely for choreography and cleaning.

Families will be contacted in September/early October if BDC staff wish to have their child perform a solo/duet. After this, a rehearsal schedule will be organized. Students will get eight (8) – 45 minute classes for each solo/duet. Solo/Duet/Trio fees will be charged at this time.

*There are a limited number of spots available for this program and they tend to fill very quickly
