School of the Arts

Class Schedule

A curriculum for both the Lower and Upper schools is used to maintain a level of consistency in training and excellence, while raising our students from the tiniest ballet dancers through our Level V students, in preparation for our Trainee Program. Our Lower School curriculum focuses on creative movement, motor skills, locomotor skills, basic ballet vocabulary and 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.


While our Upper School training is based on the Vaganova method which is steeped with much repetition and strength building, students are trained in the unique style that is Ballet Magnificat!’s own. Also introduced are other traditional methods for teaching classical ballet to achieve a well-rounded ballet education.


Pre-pointe work begins in Ballet II/B, and only when students are approved by faculty and staff are they invited to Beginning Pointe in Ballet III. Our faculty is trained in our unique curriculum before teaching classes for Ballet Magnificat! School of the Arts.
