Victoria Academy of Ballet is excited to give our program names a refresh!

We will now have our Open Division and our Vocational Division. Our Open Division, previously known as the General Program, will include our Full-Year Classes for students ages 4-18, and our Sessional Classes that run for 6-12 week sessions. Our Vocational Division will be the umbrella term for our Vocational Programs which includes the Professional Training Program and Post-Secondary Bridge Program.

Open Division: Sessional Classes

Sessional classes run for 6-12 week sessions and are a great way to explore an interest in dance, without committing to a full season. Please note, our community classes are not performance classes, and do not include a performance in our annual Celebration of Dance.

Placement is not always determined only by age. Victoria Academy of Ballet takes care in placing students in the appropriate level for their development and safety.

Open Division: Full-Year Classes

Ages 4-18

Students typically begin at Victoria Academy of Ballet in the Open Division at the foundational level, where the focus is on inspiring students and instilling a love for music, dance, and self-expression. As students progress through the levels, an increasingly more formal approach and technical structure is applied using the Cecchetti Method.┬áStudents looking to expand their dance vocabulary are offered optional add-on classes to further improve and expand their dance skills. Add-on classes include jazz, contemporary, pointe/men’s work (age and level dependent) and more. To be eligible for add-on classes, students must be taking the required ballet classes for their level. Performance classes in the Open Division take part in our annual Celebration of Dance.

Age is as of September 2022.
