Wildwood Ballet offers classes in two dance divisions—Upper and Lower—as well as Adult Classes and Private Lessons.
Our Upper Dance Division is comprised of classes for students age 8 and older. Placement in classes depends on the ability level of the student. These classes are designed to classically train students in ballet, tap, jazz, and modern. We also encourage our dancers to attend conditioning classes in order to enhance their training. A new student entering our program will need to be evaluated for placement by the Director or one of our senior teachers. During the spring semester, our teaching staff will evaluate students in class and recommend a level for the student for the following year. This recommendation will be given out to students in their Registration Packet.
Our Lower Dance Division is comprised of classes for 3-7 year old students. Placement in classes is determined by the age of the student. These classes are designed to be “recreational dance” classes and to introduce students to basic classical technique in ballet and tap.

Beginning Irish Dance!
We are excited to offer Beginning Irish Dance this year! This will be a beginner level class focusing on the basic techniques and fundamentals to build a talent in Irish Dance. Students will become acquainted with the traditional music of Irish Dance as well as begin to learn basic soft shoe steps, such as the jig and beginner reel. They will also focus on feet positioning, posture, and timing associated with the dance as well as engaging in stretches and exercises to strengthen their muscles in the correct way.
