Pre-Ballet Technique Music is the soundtrack to Janice Barringer’s 2nd level of Ballet Technique. This level is intended for 7-9-year-old students.
While this grade is called “Pre-Ballet”, it is not to be confused with ballet for pre-school aged children. In fact, it is designed for children aged 7-9 in preparation for the serious study of ballet. The requirements for this would be that the child is able to focus and their body to be able to accept rigorous physical training. A year or two of school or other dance activities will prepare the pre-ballet or ballet student in learning to take instructions such as making a straight line or getting into a circle, respect the instructor, and go by the rules. If this has been accomplished successfully and the child has a desire to study ballet, he or she would make a fine candidate.

Janice Barringer’s Ballet technique is known worldwide as the most comprehensive ballet technique for the dance studio. Ms. Barringer understands that students of the dance studio are different from students at the ballet studio. Those students at the ballet studio will study 3-8 hours each week in ballet, whereas students at a dance studio study all genres of dance, including 1-4 hours of ballet. With this understanding sits the basis of her technique. Briefly put, The Janice Barringer Ballet Technique is created specifically for dance studios. Included in Ms. Barringer’s Technique are 9 levels. Intro to Ballet, Pre-Ballet, grade 1-4 with transition classes between grades 1-2 and grades 2-3. There is also an addendum to her grade 4 level in order to offer more advanced and comprehensive exercises.
