Class Descriptions & Schedules

Midwest School of Ballet is dedicated to developing a well rounded, versatile and whole dancer. We use methods designed to not only build strength and technical skill, but also encourage exploration, foster creativity, self-confidence and artistry.  Classes are infused with terminology, history, and encourage students to see dance outside of the studio as well as be ambassadors and advocates for dance.

As your student grows into the upper levels, their technique classes will be rooted in the Cecchetti technique.  The Cecchetti Method is a progressive dance training system carefully designed to build in complexity emphasizing mechanics, technique, musicality and artistry from pre-ballet to the professional level.  Midwest School of Ballet's upper ballet classes are taught utilizing Cecchetti's set syllabus exercises along with the instructor's own sequences engaging the student to be a well rounded and versatile dancer. Famous dancers such as Pavlova and Nijinsky were under Cecchetti's tutelage and still today Cecchetti training has continued to produce many famous dancers.
