Ballet (age 5 & up)

Dance classes are geared to the appropriate age group. As students get older and are ready for more technique and discipline, we focus more on barre work. This begins to prepare students for pointe class. Ballet/Pointe has been around for   more then 325 years and was developed principally in Italy, France and Russia. Ballet terminology is French. The use of turnout of the legs, and pointed feet that extend the line of the leg, the fluid round arms, and the highly evolved technique has developed discipline, strength, speed, flexibility, grace and style to make ballet look effortless with charm and grace.
