Upper School + BV II
Academy Year 2020-2021
Schedules and registration for the new school year are coming soon! We are planning to have all levels in-person.
Dancers in both the Upper School and Ballet Virginia II must be committed and possess the physical requirements needed to facilitate classical ballet movement. They must train year round, including a pre-approved summer study program or continue their training with Ballet Virginia’s Summer Programs. These levels are a progressive course of study designed to bring a dancer from an intermediate level to the technical skill and artistry of a professional dancer.
Registration is ongoing throughout the school year
A free placement class is required for this program.
