Each level at TADA has a clear and streamlined focus for the year ahead. We aim to have all of our levels learning, and executing, the same curriculum throughout the course of the year, regardless of the teacher. We encourage teachers to have their own style of teaching, in order to help our students grow under the tutelage of our wonderfully diverse Ballet Staff, from varying professional backgrounds. Students begin by learning ballet positions, movement vocabulary, and barre work through a series of repetitive exercises. Dancers progress into center work, and, depending on strength, may begin pre-pointe with approval from the instructor and Ballet Director.​

Ballet students who are at least the age of 6 are welcome to audition and participate in our annual production of
 The Nutcracker, as well as our Spring Ballet production. This year we will be presenting The Sleeping Beauty, ​choreographed by Ballet Director, Elise Elliott.  More serious ballet students, level 4a or higher, are welcome to audition for our pre-professional Youth Ballet Company. For ballet students level 1 through 4, TADA also offers Royal Academy of Dance Examination courses. For more information on our RAD classes, Click Here.

our Ballet Program

TADA is proud to host a comprehensive and challenging ballet curriculum under TADA Ballet Director and Former Houston Ballet Soloist, Elise Elliott.

Ballet is the foundation of almost all dance forms. Ballet at TADA should be taken in conjunction with other styles of dance, as it translates across genres through alignment, turnout, balance, flexibility, and strength. Our growing Ballet Program offers Combination Classes, Creative Ballet, and Pre-Ballet for young dancers, all the way through advanced pointe and adult classes for more experienced dancers.
