Ballet

"Our children have a rich and diverse experience at Utah COPA. They are being prepared to work professionally across genres of dance, music, stage and on-camera."

Ballet is a classical style of expressive dancing based on precise conventional or codified steps. These codified steps are typically characterized as gestures, poses and movements performed with grace and fluidity. The ballet curriculum encourages principles of correct posture, placement, musicality and coordination. Ballet classes will create engaging, appropriate and challenging classes for all students while adhering to guidelines appropriate for the age and development of our students. We emphasize pre-professional achievement with each level carefully crafted to provide the most comprehensive training and coaching in order to produce a high quality dance experience.

  • Rigorous training in technique
