Ballet is the foundation of dance; every dance form uses ballet positions and vocabulary.
Ballet classes are progressive classes that move slowly to learn and develop proper technique.
It is imperative for all dancers and aspiring dancers to know ballet technique and terminology. Ballet is not a supplement for any other dance forms, it is the substance. If Dance were a language, ballet would be the letters that form the words. Ballet is best known for dancers dancing precise, graceful, ethereal movements. But don’t let that intimidate or discourage you; Ballet is for dancers at any age, with every body type, at every level of dance knowledge. It promotes the development of flexibility, long lean muscles and strength.
Technique, choreography, and terminology are taught at every level. Conditioning and flexibility training, and theater are introduced. Positions for the feet, arms and body are introduced and reinforced. These classes will follow a format of a classical ballet class to include basic barre exercise and center practice. Dancers will also demonstrate skills and combinations traveling across the floor.
Female Students must wear pink tights, leotard and pink ballet shoes. Male dancers wear black sweat pants, white tshirt and black ballet shoes. Hair must be fastened away from the face, preferably in a bun.
When a dancer takes multiple classes the tuition is prorated by hour with a discount.
