Our Milieu Beginners are a very unique class offering at Fleur.  There are many young dancers who for a myriad of reasons did not have the opportunity to begin dancing until a later age.  We believe these dancers deserve the opportunity to learn ballet as well.  This class is a beginner level for those young men and women who may be in need of a later start to this beautiful art form.

In our advanced level students truly begin to have the professional experience.  With multiple classes every day we focus on the connection between technique and artistry.  Traditionally at this point in a dancer’s development their technical foundation is in place and the merging of the physical aptitude as an expression of poetry is the focal point.  Although there is always growth in technique it is because of the attention upon the artistic expression rather than in sacrifice of it.

In our final level the concentration becomes preparing students for the possibility of a career. With an emphasis on advanced pointe work, artistic fullness, partnering, and technical fortitude this truly is an intensive level, aiding students to fulfill their greatest potential within.  This graduate level offers classes where students experience dancing the great dances of our heritage as well as advisory sessions on future aspirations.  At the completion of this study our students are fully prepared to pursue a career in whatever field they choose, including conservatory, collegiate, or performance tracks.
