Ballet is the foundation and core of all styles of dance. Every style of dance stems from the technique and the skills mastered in ballet. Ballet is the class that will create the strongest dancer across the board in every style. When a parent comes to me and asks which classes I would suggest for their child, I will ALWAYS suggest a dancer take a ballet, and then add classes from there. In ballet, the focus will be technique, terminology, proper body posture and alignment, balance and coordinaiton. As dancers become stronger in their technique, barre exercised will be implemented. Dances learned in ballet class will be a ballet/lyrical style and will be performed in both the winter and spring showcase.
