Ballet

(1st grade and up)

This is the foundation for all types of dance and is the student’s first introduction to formal ballet class structure. More advanced stretching and strengthening exercises are given, barre work is introduced with a greater emphasis on vocabulary and French terminology. Musicality continues to be emphasized along with balance and coordination through the strengthening of the body core. Center floor work is introduced with continued focus on the positions of the arms, legs and feet using classical ballet vocabulary.

The student will work on fluidity of movement, balance, and combinations.

(Each child is individually placed in a particular class level based on previous experience and training.)
