Ballet

Ballet is the foundation for all dance forms.  Classes begin at the barre combining floor barre work with traditional ballet alignment exercises holding on to the barre, and then they progress to center floor combinations. Correct ballet terminology is stressed as is proper alignment, classical technique, and musicality. This style of dance stresses academic technique developed through muscle strength, balance, control, and fluid movements.  This class will improve a dancer's strength, rhythm and balance as well as stretch & tone muscles while respecting each individual's flexibility limits. A solid foundation of intermediate to advanced Ballet technique is required for Pointe work. The instructor will determine if a student is technically and physically capable of dancing on Pointe.
