Performance Opportunities
The Cache Valley Civic Ballet-School offers one to two performing opportunities a year. The first performance is our Sugar Plum Tea Performance in December at the end of the Fall Semester for our Pre-Ballet 2 through Level 4 students.  Dancers learn variations fromThe Nutcracker and wear costumes owned by The School for the show, so there are no costume or performance fees.  The second performing opportunity is inMay at the Year-End Performance at end of the Spring Semester.  All students of The School’s (except our Pilates classes) will have the opportunity to perform.  For this performance students will wear their classical ballet attire (dress code for The School). Additional performing opportunities are presented through The Company (these are audition based).
Technique Classes
Technique Classes are designed to promote the study of Ballet as a fine art. Students will learn the basics of classical ballet from our youngest dancers (Toddler Dance, must be 3 years old and potty trained prior to the semester) through our most advanced students (Level 10).  We also offer Teen/Adult class in both beginning and intermediate/advanced ballet classes. Students are monitored and assessed each semester for next level readiness.  Advancements from those assessments happen at the beginning of our school year, in our Fall Semester.  Student in levels 1-8 are also tested in ballet terminology and complete a written exam each year during our Spring Semester.  Those terms can be found above on this page.  New this year our Pre-Ballet 2 through Level 4 classes have been extended an additional 15 minutes to develop performance skills appropriate for their individual levels and to focus on upcoming performance preparation.
Teen & Adults
Teen & Adults Classes are for teens and adults to learn and participate in ballet. Ballet helps to teach proper placement and posture of the body, while also strengthening and toning different muscle groups.  We offer two classes, one for beginners through intermediate and the other intermediate through advanced dancers.  There is also the option of performing in the Year-End Performance in May.
Pilates for Dancers
Pilates exercises help both men and women of all ages, especially dancers.  The benefits of Pilates can include building core strength and stability, improved posture, alignment, increased flexibility, balance, muscle endurance and tone, helps prevent injuries, heightened body awareness, and can relieve stress and back pain.  This is the perfect complement to any dancers training.
Genre Dance Classes
This class is new this year and will rotate through several different styles of dance from, Character, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, Theatre Movement, and Hip Hop. The focus of the class is to learn the other genres of dance in order to help the students become more familiar with the different styles of dance. This training will help them to become stronger and more versatile as performers.  By becoming more familiar with the other styles of dance, the student will become more confident as performers in the dance field.
