Ballet technique is a dancer’s key to excellence and is truly the alphabet to your dance vocabulary. Ballet classes are designed to develop the crucial foundation essential to every dancer’s individual growth, success and knowledge of their given body. In ballet, students will learn classical techniques based in Checchetti and in the style of Balanchine while building strength, flexibility, style and grace. Students learn self-discipline, endurance, and how to guide their own perseverance. Advanced level dancers will have the opportunity to practice and perform pointework in class. Pointe options will be individually discussed between dancer and teacher.
