  • Description - New Bern Ballet Inc

    New Bern Ballet Pre-Ballet, Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical & Jazz Ages 2-Adult. We believe that every student who takes dance, whether for improved fitness, coordination, confidence, an aspiring professional career, or just for fun, must be trained to the highest standards to ensure positive results. We consider ourselves to be an educational facility and not just a dance studio. Our expectation is to educate your child not only in the art of dance but also in the social skills needed to be a productive member of a group. We work on self-discipline and self-awareness as well as ballet and its history and terminology. We encourage and motivate with positive reinforcement and praise. Logical consequences are used only when needed to maintain the learning environment. Our curriculum also includes Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary Choreography & Ballet Live. All classes at New Bern Ballet focus on one form of dance (there are no combination classes). This allows more time to spend on technique and terminology specific to one area of dance. Classes are small, providing the students with more interaction with the teacher. The Teachers and Assistants at New Bern Ballet are caring individuals, who care about the students and the art form. They strive to provide a creative environment in which the students can progress as dancers and have fun while doing so. NBB believes it important to provide a safe facility that is conducive to learning. Our studio is arranged with separate waiting areas, bathrooms, dressing rooms and dance studio - separating the dance studio from these other areas removes distractions and maintains the learning environment. The observation area has a one-way mirror through which parents can see what's happening in the studio without diverting the students attention from the instructor. The studio has a quality dance floor from StageStep, which is better for dancer's knees and feet. We've also custom fabricate furniture, fixtures and props when we can't find child-safe items commercially. These attributes combine with a light and airy studio to provide an enriching environment for students to dance and learn. All dancers at NBB are invited to participate in our Spring Showcase. Dancers age 5 and up also have the opportunity to perform with our performance company. The New Bern Ballet Company performs several times during the year at venues across New Bern. We also offer a 'Ballet Live' class where dancers produce and choreograph their own interpretation of a classic ballet story. If you or your dancer is interested in New Bern Ballet, we encourage you to contact us and arrange a visit - we accept registrations year-round. Your dancer can try out a class while you observe through the one-way mirror in the parent observation area. Afterwards, you and your dancer can visit with Miss Laura and ask any questions.
