PROGRAM PROFILE: The Dancing Above the Barre program consists of eight weeks of classes, one hour per week, culminating in a presentation. Participants will range from 4-12 years of age, with modifications available for older and younger participants, as well. Currently, there are no dance programs of this nature in the Greensboro area and the School of Greensboro Ballet is proud to offer this dance opportunity.

A local physical therapist serves as a consultant to develop a dance program specifically for young children with physical disabilities. Each position or movement has modified versions available depending on the child's abilities and needs.

Each participant will have their own volunteer helper. These helpers attend a training session before the classes begin, as well as a get-together with the dancers and their families to establish relationships before entering the dance classroom.

THE BENEFITS OF Dancing Above the Barre:

PROGRAM COST: $50 per dancer/session (Some financial assistance is available if needed.)

WHAT YOU WILL NEED: Pink, black or white leotard, pink tights, ballet shoes. We suggest purchasing items from Carolina Dancewear, 1627 New Garden Rd, Greensboro, NC 27410. Phone: 336.856.9983

LOCATION: Held at the School of Greensboro Ballet studios, 3rd floor of the Greensboro Cultural Center, 200 N. Davie St, Suite 302. This building is handicapped accessible.

What do the letters mean by some of the classes (ex. CD2-A & CD2-B)?  They only indicate to the staff the different classes by their day of the week and time of day. In other words, the levels of dance are the same, just the day & time are different.
