Ballet 3-7 Extension
A formal extension of the LoMastro ballet curriculum levels 3-7. During these classes students work to refine their skills in preparation for the proficiency assessment, which offers the chance to demonstrate their technical ability and understanding of the material, based on the Cecchetti Method of training. The assessment will take place during the last class of the session, and those who successfully complete it will be awarded a certificate at the corresponding level and acknowledged on stage at our annual recital.
Advanced dancers (level 7-8, LCP) are eligible for Repertoire courses, where they'll learn a variation from a well-known classical ballet and work on repertoire development exercises to further develop their technique and artistry. The repertoire proficiency assessment on the last day, gives dancers the chance to showcase their skills and progress. Those who successfully pass will be awarded a certificate at the corresponding level and acknowledged on stage at our annual recital.
How is the assessment scored? The proficiency assessment is designed to measure the knowledge, skill, aptitude, physical fitness and classification of the student taking it.
