These students continue to build strength, flexibility, and coordination through more difficult barre work. Batterie, more complex turns, and quicker allegro, along with more complex grand allegro steps are studied. Additionally, artistry, musicality, nuance, interpretation, performance quality, and dynamics are stressed in order to make the dancer a more complete artist. Variations, choreography, more complex pointe work, and other styles of dance are also included in these levels. Dancers at this level may audition for membership in the Bristol Ballet Company's Junior or Senior Company.
