Our young Junior levels are constructed to facilitate a love for dance while incorporating discipline, technique, and inspiration. Focus is essential to establishing a strong and healthy foundation for future ballet technique and training. Correct body placement, enhanced technical skills and vocabulary progression are all further developed in these levels. In addition to ballet technique classes, the junior curriculum includes specialty classes, such as contemporary, jazz, musical theater and an introduction to our pilates strengthening program. MDT prioritizes supporting the development of the full person, as well as the dancer, through our nurturing and encouraging faculty.
