A soft introduction to the art of Classical Ballet for children ages 5-7. We use a balance of play and structure to prepare each student to enter the Fundamental level.
Register quarterly or for the entire year.
Ballet Fundamentals 1 & 2-
For the beginning ballet student. Dancers work on classical technique at a steady pace. If you have attended classical ballet before, an instructor will meet with you and give recommendation of the appropriate class placement.
A full year commitment is recommended.
Fundamentals 1: Ages 7-9 (or by recommendation of instructor)
Fundamentals 2: Ages 10+(or by recommendation of instructor)
Karar Academy, Clear Lake is entering it's 11th season and is under the leadership of
Director, Wendy Dietrich.
*NEW Beginner Ballet Fundamentals
For the student interested in trying classical ballet without the full year commitment. Eight classes to teach classical ballet basics and prepare the late starter for enrollment in our regular Fundamentals 1 or 2 programs mid season. Begin when it's convenient with the option to continue when the student is ready and if the student desires.
Ballet 3 & up-
Students deepen their understanding of technique, increase pace, add skills and advance combinations. Testing required for completion.
Pre Pointe & Pointe 1 -
A first level pointe class by instructor recommendation only. OR a pre pointe class for dancers who have passed Fundamentals 2 and are not yet ready to be en pointe.
Stretch, Strength and Extend-
A full body stretch class using movements that flow smoothly to increase flexibility, decrease muscle tension, develop core strength, and improve leg extension.
*NEW Aspire Program!
Aspire is a teacher training program. Students having passed level 3 training are welcome to register for the Aspire Program.
The purpose of the Aspire Teacher Training program (ATT) is to raise up dancers from within our own school to become leaders and future Karar instructors. The ATT will provide our school with dancers, well trained and equipped to stand up and lead a single class at a moments' notice or as planned long term instructors and/or program leaders/directors. This leadership training must be strongly bent to the heart of the participant. While they must know how to teach ballet technique, they must foremost have a heart for the Lord their God and be ready to lead in prayer and simple Bible Studies. Whether an ATT participant stays within Karar or moves on, we hope to equip them with leadership skills that will serve them well in any walk of life. More information is available upon request.
Proudly located in the Clear Lake Area Community Center.
3rd floor, room 306
Due to the recommendations from the CDC and the Wisconsin Department of

We are watching the recommendations closely. It is our hope that we will still be able to hold an end of the year celebration.
