The class includes additional, challenging components of a standard ballet curriculum, such as increased demi pointe work at the barre & in the center, barre & center adagio, various turns at the barre and in the center, and a wider repertoire of petit allegro.

Featured steps in Ballet II have included the numerous different forms of Assemblé, Jeté, and Sissone

There will be an in-class final exam in which students will perform 2-4 petit and grand allegro combinations for the instructor and their classmates; these combinations will showcase different forms of the featured ballet step for the term.
