Lower and Upper School Curriculum
A curriculum for both the Lower and Upper schools is used to maintain a level of consistency in training and excellence.
Lower School (ages 3-7) curriculum focuses on creative movement, motor skills, loco-motor skills, basic ballet terminology, and ballet etiquette. While fostering a joy of movement and worship through dance, we have woven Bible stories into our Lower School curriculum to help cultivate students’ love for God’s Word.
Upper School (ages 8 and up) training is based on the Vaganova method which includes extensive repetition and strength building, and is complemented with the unique style that is Ballet Magnificat!’s own. We also introduce other traditional methods of classical ballet to achieve a well-rounded ballet education.
Our faculty is trained in our unique curriculum before teaching classes for Ballet Magnificat! School of the Arts.
Lower School – placed by age as of September 1
Upper School – placement is determined by physical ability, level of commitment, attitude, and technical achievement, by Ballet Magnificat! faculty
