What is Classical Ballet?

Classical ballet provides the foundation for all other dance forms. It is the most demanding, most disciplined of all dance forms, but also the most rewarding. With a solid ballet foundation, classically trained dancers can transfer their skills into jazz, modern dance, or any other dance form they might decide to pursue. Accomplishing that solid ballet foundation is crucial to becoming an outstanding dancer in any dance form. Ballet students will improve strength, flexibility, grace and overall coordination. Ballet structure is unsurpassed in training dancers, but inevitable by-products of this training are better posture, a more trim body, and increased ease in everyday movements. Exposure to beautiful classical music is a plus.

TINY TOTS BALLET (2½ YEARS) BABIES BALLET (3 YEARS) PREP BALLET (4 YEARS)

These are a fun and creative classes for little ballerinas. Preparatory for classical ballet technique, these classes are designed to develop coordination, balance, strength and rhythm. Moving to various music students develop creativity and musicality. We also use props that will capture your child’s imagination. In our Prep classes young dancers also begin to learn the classical positions of the feet and arms in addition to basic ballet steps. We aim to build confidence and inspire a love of dance.
