SUMMER ONLY: Private/Semi-Private Lessons: Age 12+ May-Aug (All ages July-Aug)

Summer is a wonderful opportunity to customize your training. Over the summer months, students can choose their teacher, choose the focus of the class, invite their siblings, friends, peers and carpool buddies to share the cost, and schedule when it works best for their families. (Teacher bios found HERE.) When you sign up for this class, you will receive an email which lists teacher availability and contact info. Dancers ages 5-11, July and August ONLY. Dancers age 12+, May-Aug.
Cost: FREE to sign up (to receive the email) for current BA students. $20 for everyone else. Cost of the lessons may vary by teacher. Paid directly to teacher via venmo.

Age 3-6: Fall Semester Mini Session Classes -$175

For new dancers ages 3-6, this 45 minute class builds on dancers' natural abilities, gently introducing them to ballet class structure, themes, and technique by engaging their movement and imagination, all to the music and motifs of classical ballets. Participants in this class age 4+ MAY be invited to perform in Ballet Aligned productions. (Performance participation requires a separate registration and fees. See below.) Outside of required performance leos, there is no dress code. Parents are invited to watch for the last 10 min of every 4 week session. (This class CAN be taken 4 weeks at a time: see Four-Week Mini Session below). Dancers not enrolled in the entire semester and/or who are 3 years old will not perform outside of the parent watch classes.

Age 3-6: Four-week Mini Session -$50

This is the same class as above, but for only 4 weeks at a time instead of the entire semester. Dancers not enrolled in a full semester will NOT perform outside of parent watch weeks (dates below). There is no dress code. Tuition covers any consecutive four weeks. If you'd like your dancer to complete the study of a single ballet, four week sessions start Aug 21, Sept 18, Oct 16, and Nov 13. Parents are invited to watch for the last 10 min of class on Sept 11, Oct 9, Nov 6, and Dec 4 . 

Age 5-7: Ballet Beginnings - $175

For new and progressing students, this 45 min class moves a curious and energetic dancer down a path to better “dancing,” introducing concepts like musicality and movement dynamics while building body coordination and utilizing the dancer's imagination! The curriculum is based in creative movement (teaching and establishing the foundational concepts of all dance forms) with some ballet steps and terminology. This class will be invited to perform in Ballet Aligned productions. (Performance participation requires a separate registration and fees. See below.) Outside of required performance leos, there is no dress code, but ballet slippers, tights, and leos are recommended.

Age 6-8: Ballet Basics - $240

For new and progressing ballet dancers, this 60 min class begins to establish positions, use ballet terminology, and instruct more comprehensively on correct execution of ballet technique. There is still space for the flow of imagination, using lots of creative imagery and encouraging the dancers in their free expression. There is a dress code requirement for all students which will be emailed once your registration is complete. Participants in this class will be invited to perform in Ballet Aligned productions. (Performance participation requires a separate registration and fees. See below.) 

Age 7-10: Ballet Basics II - $240 1x/wk; $480 2x/wk

For new and progressing young ballet dancers, this 75 min class is similar to Basics I in content, with accelerated pacing. Basics II can be taken once OR twice a week for faster progression both through ballet terminology and in body strength, flexibility, and coordination. Dancers age 9+ are strongly encouraged to take twice a week. (Dancers under age 11 will not be advanced to Foundations Prep until they have taken Ballet Basics II - or an equivalent class with another program - twice a week.) There is a dress code requirement for all students which will be emailed once your registration is complete. Participants in this class will be invited to perform in Ballet Aligned productions. (Performance participation requires a separate registration and fees.) 

THIS YEAR: Payment installments accepted for dancers attending 2x/wk or more! Text BA for more info!

Age 9-11: Foundations Prep -$573

This 1.5 hr class is taken twice a week to help dancers establish a sense of personal responsibility for their progression in ballet technique, and it begins to develop strength and placement through the dancer's core and ankles in preparation for the Foundations classes and work en pointe. By invitation, dancers in this class may enroll in a semester of the Foundations Supplemental class held Fridays, from 3-5pm. (Details below.) There is a dress code requirement for all students which will be emailed once your registration is complete. Participants in this class will be invited to perform in Ballet Aligned productions. (Performance participation requires a separate registration and fees. See below.) 

Age 11+: Foundations w/ Pointe/Pointe Prep/Beginning Pointe - $852

For progressing dancers, this class utilizes an approach to training developed by Steffanie Casperson in her professional career and refined over a decade teaching. This class is 2x/wk for a weekly total of 4.5 hours and is designed to lay a solid foundation of focus, alignment, and core placement that will strengthen and clarify classical technique, as well as introduce dancers to work en pointe. Dancers in this class are also strongly encouraged to enroll in a semester of the Foundations Supplemental class held Fridays, from 3-5pm. (Details below.) There is a dress code requirement for all students which will be emailed once your registration is complete. Participants in this class will be invited to perform in Ballet Aligned productions. (Performance participation requires a separate registration and fees.) (Beginning ballet dancers age 13+ should enroll in our teen/adult class.)

Intermediate/Advanced: By Placement Only - $825

This class is 2x/wk for a weekly total of 4.5 hours and is for intermediate to advanced students with 2 years of experience on pointe, AND who are attending other approved ballet classes an additional 2x/week minimum. Dancers in this class are also strongly encouraged to enroll in a semester of the Foundations Supplemental class held Fridays, from 3-5pm. (Details below.) In addition to strengthening technique, dancers are expected to perform in Ballet Aligned productions and Education and Outreach opportunities. Students are also prepared for Summer Intensive auditions and encouraged to attend these. There is a dress code requirement for all students which will be emailed once your registration is complete. (Performance participation requires a separate registration and fees. See below.) 

Foundations Augmented - $234

This class on Fridays at 3pm is designed to give our fully enrolled students in the Foundations and Intermediate/Advanced levels (with Foundations Prep by invite) the opportunity to develop every skill relevant to a career in or adjacent to professional dancing. We'll develop technique, work on cross-training and conditioning, gain experience in other forms of dance, coach YAGP entries, and enjoy industry professionals as guest instructors. A 1.5 hr class each Friday is guaranteed, which may be augmented to 2 hours (at no additional cost) to accommodate guest schedules. This class MAY be attended as a series of non-consecutive workshops (which will be open to non-Ballet Aligned dancers), but workshop pricing will be higher and space in class is offered to students enrolled in this class first. (A workshop schedule is TBA and will be emailed to enrollees in this class and posted on the events page of BalletAligned.com.)

THIS YEAR: Payment installments accepted for dancers attending 2x/wk or more! Text BA for more info!

Fall Performance: Night Before Christmas - $55

We are excited to provide performance opportunities for ALL our fully enrolled students age 5+! Performances require a greater time commitment: MANDATORY rehearsals OUTSIDE OF CLASS including an in-studio run-through and on-stage spacing and dress rehearsal. Solid attendance, punctuality, and proactive parental assistance are REQUIRED of cast members. (Please make careful note of the performance agreement on the website when enrolling in this class. If you fail to meet your commitments, no refund will be offered.) This year, Ballet Aligned is hoping to provide most of the performance leos. Fees will cover your participation, unlimited portrait and on-stage images of the production, and a video link of the performance. If you have any additional questions, please text them to Ballet Aligned at 435.633.1225.

Teen/Adult Class - $249

This 1.5hr, once a week class is for dancers ages 12+. Come try ballet, get a great work out, or add the class to your Ballet Aligned training to refine your skills! There is no dress code, and this class is not part of the Ballet Aligned productions, except by invite.

Why should you take classes with Ballet Aligned?

1. We have the best teachers in the valley, focused on fostering a love of classical ballet for our beginning students, and focusing on establishing a solid technical foundation for our students as they advance.
2. ALL our students are invited to perform in our shows if they are able to make the performance commitment, which only falls on ONE WEEKEND PER SEMESTER! And our shows are NOT recitals but narrative story ballets, often featuring professional guests, that raise money (over $6,000 donated in 2022-23) for worthy Cache Valley causes! (Check out BalletBenefit.com to see pictures from our shows last year.)
3. SO AFFORDABLE! At our highest levels, taking classes 3x/week for 2hrs each time (AND MORE), ballet over an entire year, including costumes fees and all the rest, is UNDER $1500!
4. Our fully enrolled students (AND their parents!) who attend 2x/week or more are invited to attend Ballet West performances in SLC FREE of charge! More about these AND other community outreach events at BalletAligned.com/events.
5. Because ballet is a classical art form, there are no competitions or conventions you are required to attend, and no competitive/intimidating mindsets or personalities to navigate around.
6. Because we believe in the development of the whole artist, our students receive discounts (new for the 2023-24 school year) to train with our partner, Utah Festival Conservatory to help them become powerful storytellers as well as skilled dancers!
