Ballet, Jazz, and Tap form the core of our technique based instruction.  While we offer many other styles of dance, some of those styles require additional education in ballet and jazz.  As such, there are certain dance classes that are only available if paired with a corresponding ballet or jazz class.

  • Lyrical:  If taking lyrical, you must also take a minimum of 1 ballet class.
  • Musical theatre, Acro, and Hip Hop Dance:  If taking these classes, you must also take a minimum of 1 jazz class.
  • Grade level curriculum:  PDT makes use of professional ballet, tap, and jazz curriculum.  As such, we seek to find the optimal classes for our students dance growth.  Some students may be used to ‘classes by age’.  At PDT, we are an institution of learning first.  As such, rather than age, we place students where they are best suited for growth in dance.

PDT believes that proper dance wear facilitates a more professional learning environment.  Please CLICK HERE to see the required dance attire for the 2023-2024 dance season.  As always, contact us if you have any questions.

Dancewares and Bobby’s are both aware of our dance requirements.

Our ICB Ballet program is a wonderful and unique opportunity for Lincoln’s ballet students.  All Ballet classes follow the Imperial Classical Ballet curriculum.  Students may opt to exam in each grade they take by qualified panelists ensuring that they are learning the proper technique and terminology.  While not required, this is a rewarding and worthwhile effort for serious ballet students.  Contact the studio to find out more!
