Ballet is the basis for all dance training. It develops poise, gracefulness, good posture and a sense of line and technique needed for all dance forms. We draw from ballet methods with emphasis on correct technique and body placement. The younger students will increase motor skills while learning to take instructions and develop creative movement. As a student progresses age, experience and individual progression determine placement. A class level that is too advanced for a student is not enjoyable, can be detrimental to long-term self-esteem and does not avail maximum opportunity to learn. If we feel that a child’s class will not best serve her/his needs, we will contact you and make appropriate changes.
