Junior School

Overview

Goh Ballet's Junior School provides comprehensive classical ballet education along with classes in other dance disciplines for students ages 4 and up. Taught by certified and award-winning instructors, our Junior School curriculum follows a progressive structure designed to assist each child in reaching their highest potential. The Junior School offers class placement for students of every age and ability, whether focused on after-school dance education or developing the strong skills and technique required to become a professional dancer.

The focus of training in the Junior School is sequential, providing building blocks for children to grow from one year to the next. Our faculty members provide an encouraging, stimulating dance education while reducing anxiety and fear in the classroom. Classes are structured on a rigorous curriculum centered on classical technique and all students take part in a annual high-caliber theatre performance each spring at a professional venue to showcase their achievements.
