three-year-olds, and continues through teens and adults.
Younger children's classes are grouped by age, but in
the more advanced children's classes skill and level

Pointe is begun in level four, but only for properly
prepared dancers. Teen and adult classes round out the

SPECIAL SAFETY FEATURES OF FRESH POND BALLET'S FLOOR:
Fresh Pond Ballet's studio has a specially built sprung
floor, built up over rubber cushioning, creating a resilient
sub floor. This resilience means a softer landing for
dancers. Fresh Pond Ballet also has a marley surface,
a special non-skid, non-slip dance vinyl designed for
ease and flow of movement. There are no splinters, no
uneven boards, etc. to hamper movement. Fresh Pond Ballet
is concerned with safety and providing optimum conditions
for learning ballet.
