Classes Up Close: Ballet for ages 4-12

Continuing in our blog series focusing on classes that have a few spots remaining, today’s post features our Classical Ballet Classes for ages 4-12. At AWIP, we want students to feel comfortable in any class that they pursue, so we ensure that our dance class atmospheres are warm and encouraging for all skill levels and ages. Dance classes form an excellent foundation for any performing arts student!


Students in Classical Ballet classes will learn alignment fundamentals and ballet basics. In a nurturing and fun environment, students will work on technique, physical awareness and discipline. This training will impact them for years to come as they learn self-control, poise, and grow in strength.  They will also be taught a dance which will be performed at the end of the session (in the fall), and will be a part of the Junior Production of “Narnia” in the spring (not to worry, our junior production will be much shorter this year).


  • MANDATORY OPEN HOUSE: Tuesday, January 2 @12:00
  • REGULAR CLASSTIMES: Tuesdays from January 9 – April 3 (12 weeks) per this schedule-
    • 11:15-11:45:  Ages 4-6
    • 12:00-12:45: Ages 7-11


Bailey Tolliver

Bailey began dance instruction at the age of three at The Turning Pointe School of Dance, in Plainville MA.  After almost a decade of taking ballet, jazz, and lyrical, Bailey decided to focus on classical ballet, Isadora Duncan, and contemporary. In 2014 she performed in The Nutcracker as a Spanish chocolate, flower, and angel, and decided to dance full time at Foxboro Classical Ballet under the direction of 3 former Boston Ballet performers, including a former Boston Ballet Mistress and the current Ballet Mistress for Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre. In 2015 she joined Perceptions Concert Dance Experience, a pre-professional contemporary company, and performed in For the Living under the direction of Alexander Drapinski. In addition, she was the 2016 nutcracker Kissy Doll, lead Trepak, and Snowflake. She has also begun dance modeling.

Bailey has enjoyed demonstrating for 3 different studios in jazz and ballet, and likes to attend dance intensives. For fun she has taken classes in hip hop, tap, and acro but also enjoys the outdoors and camping with her family.
