Advanced Ballet is designed for students ages 13 and up. Promotion into the Advanced Class is based on ability rather than age; students must be performing at an adequate level in the Intermediate Advanced level in order to be accepted into this level. Most students in the Advanced Ballet are members of City Ballet of Houston and are allowed unlimited classes with their tuition. Students at this level are encouraged to take as many hours of ballet technique and point as possible with at least two Pilates classes added per week. Many students at this level also perform in ballet competitions and special events that require private coaching. ACBH also encourages professionals who are in town to attend this class.
