Ballet School of Vermont Online Ballet Classes

Online Ballet Classes

Starting April 2020, The Ballet School of Vermont is opening up our online classes to dance students that have lost the ability to have regular classes or want to enhance their training, stay in shape, and learn through our unique program. Our classes include Barre (tech & pointe), Centre Practice, Strength & Stretch Home Challenges and Body Conditioning mat classes which include Yoga, Pilates, Floor Barre, and Cardio. Classes for the beginning young student to the Pre-professional, and even the adult wanting our Body Conditioning classes. Each class is done in 30 minute segments, through the free BAND App.

Check out online class clips on our Facebook Page.

How It Works

Our regular instructors and special guest teachers upload video recorded or stream live classes to the BAND App according to each class level schedule and issue special challenges and messages to students.

Students watch from their computer or mobile device and communicate with each other and the instructors through the in-app message chat.

Students continue their training and stay connected to other dancers during this time away from their home ballet studios.

Class Descriptions & Pricing

Pricing is based on the amount of uploaded professional content offered in each level/area. We use the industry-leading Jackrabbit Account Management System. You will provide your credit card information securely during Registration. Our office staff will review your registration and process a monthly subscription fee per student registered. Access to past and future online classes will be available through the BAND App and set up through email and/or text correspondence. You can watch uploaded content/class segments as many times as you like and communicate with instructors and other students! You can email your request to cancel your monthly access anytime and it will become effective for the following month.

For students we don’t know who would like access to the Pointe Video Instruction, you can email Director Maryellen Vickery at me@balletschoolofvermont.com the following for consideration: Your first & last name, how many years you have been training in pointe shoes, how many technique classes and duration you take a week and the name of your home ballet school. We may ask for more information such as photos or a short video. Students approved to access our Pointe Instruction on BAND will have at least 2 pointe segments a week in addition to all their other Upper Level Instruction.
