As the foundation of all dance, ballet is fundamental to the education of any dancer. Using exercises at the barre as well as center combinations that are both adagio and allegro, students learn the classical art of ballet under various Russian methods. While learning technique, students build proper posture, carriage, and, perhaps most importantly, self-confidence. Classes are offered for all ages and a student’s level is determined by the teacher based on a student’s individual ability. Ballet classes also improve a student’s ability and performance in all other forms of dance.
The time a ballet student advances to Pointe is determined by the Instructor and the Director and is based on a student’s individual strength and ability. Students must take a minimum of two ballet classes to be considered for Pointe.
