The Junior Program
Hawaii State Ballet is noted for its excellence in training in the state of Hawaii, and has also been acknowledged by ballet schools on the mainland.
Children are enrolled in the school in the beginning levels, or by a class audition for the higher levels. Beginning ballet classes offer a simple introduction to the art form. Students are progressed up the nine levels of the Junior Program as their individual abilities develop and improve. The number of classes per week increases to assure proper conditioning for the more difficult ballet vocabulary.
Pointe work begins when the student achieves proper and consistent technique, strength and alignment, and has progressed to the fourth level class. Advanced Junior Company level classes require more discipline, dedication and focus in order to attain the technical proficiency and meet the demands required of a professional dancer.
