Our students have the opportunity to study costume design and construction from the early levels.

Students learn sewing basics both by hand and with a machine. Using basic stitches they will work with materials that are used in typical ballet costumes. Sessions each have a different theme from a different classical ballet and students will create a relevant section of a costume from the theme of the session. They will keep their creations from each session.
