classes & registration

Welcome!  The Ballet Academy of Central Florida’s Formal Program is approximately twelve years.  Students may move through the program at a faster rate depending on their commitment and ability.  They must master the level’s requirements in strength, flexibility, placement, musicality, and specific technical accomplishment in order to progress to the next level.  Each student will move at their own rate.  A student can be near the top of a level and still have areas to work on before advancement to the next level.  Regular class attendance is critical to a student’s progress.

By enrolling your child at BACF, we appreciate that you take an active role in assisting your dancer with a genuine, enthusiastic and positive interest in your child’s progression.  We ask that you trust that our staff and faculty will make placement decisions in your child’s best interest.

To enroll at BACF, students 5 and older must take a placement class to ensure the most appropriate class schedule (potty-trained students 3 and up may enroll in Creative Movement; a placement class is not required).  The instructor will recommend your student’s level by assessing the number of years of prior dance training, pace in “picking up” material, physical development, attitude and work ethic in class.  If there are any changes you will be notified by the next class of the appropriate class the student belongs.

 

Looking for adult classes?   We also offer a complete schedule for beginner to advanced adults.
