Grow beautifully through flamboyant public performances
The Ballet Program newly established in April 2015 consists of three courses of study, namely the “Global”, the “Tani Momoko Ballet” and the “Asami Maki Ballet”. Students may commit themselves to a single course of study they selected at the time of admission to the University throughout four years and graduate. Classes provided by other courses may also be taken other than required subjects, if the student so desires.
A broad range of dance belonging to genres other than ballet, such as contemporary dance, character dance, jazz dance, tap dance, Japanese dance and the like can be studied through classes, while such fundamentals of music as Solfège or harmonics can also be learned.
The practice environment includes four dance studios, as well as two studios dedicated to ballet, along with changing rooms equipped with showers to provide an environment in which students can concentrate on ballet to their heart’s content.
Public performances for presenting the fruits of these classes include joint performances with orchestras, wind instrument performance and various other ensembles.
We invite students to elevate the level of their proficiency in ballet that they have worked on for many years in this new environment facilitated by this college of music.
- Ballet classes for learning under instruction of directors from various ballet companies.
- Fully fledged public performance with students taking part on stage with dancers of top level ballet companies.
- Splendid environment that can only be made available by a college of music where joint performance with orchestras and wind instrument performances are possible.
