Intermediate Ballet

The Intermediate Ballet Program at LDT Academy is part of our full Ballet Division.

These programs include classes in ballet and modern. Students who plan to progress to more advanced levels of ballet technique should plan to take the full Ballet Program.

In the Choreograph Your Own Program, students may take ballet technique without taking the full ballet program.
