Ballet Classes

Age: 5+ years

Ballet is the basis of all dance. It is crucial for the development of your dance skill set. Our ballet classes focus on developing a solid ballet technique with emphasis on correct body placement, alignment, proper use of turn out, coordination of the upper body (epaulement), and use of arms (port de bras).

Class begins with exercises at the barre to build strength and coordination, followed by center floor work, culminating in a grand allegro combination or variation. Clear explanations of exercises and theory help students use the ballet vocabulary in a simple, practical way that leads to increased technical understanding, healthy physical development, and lifelong enjoyment. Students are placed in classes based on their age and level of experience.

Dress Code: Pink tights, Black Leotard, Pink Ballet shoes/Pointe' shoes for advanced students approved by instructors. Students may wear leg warmers, ballet skirts, and other warm up ballet clothes during the winter to keep muscles warm to prevent injury.
