Youth Ballet Dance Classes

The Youth Ballet Levels each instruct a progressing syllabus of steps and techniques in the classical ballet cannon. As students advance through the levels, increased opportunities to bring their developing classwork and artistic expression to life are realized through performing in the Ballet Conservatory. The dancers’ intermediate training culminates with graduation from Ballet 3 and thus earning their first pair of pointe shoes to begin Ballet 4!

  • This school is nothing like we have experienced….

    It is well managed and offers a wide range of classes. Best of all it gave my 3 children self confidence in their capabilities and the proper skills to perform at their recital.

  • I have been impressed with SEDMA!…

    Our daughter has been dancing with the studio for years, and she has blossomed into an excellent dancer. What impresses me the most? Excellent teachers, excellent opportunities to dance with professionals, and the care the owners and faculty put into knowing each family that is a part of the studio.

  • I danced here for 10 wonderful years….

    All the teachers here are dedicated to each student and helping them grow as a dancer. I loved every year I spent training at this studio. Every teacher has their own personal experience with dance, bringing inside knowledge and variety to each class. Overall, I recommend this studio to any dancer looking for a family of talented and inspiring dancers and teachers!
