Ballet is the foundation of dance and all technique disciplines are derived from Ballet. Ballet introduces technique through barre work, across the floor, and center exercises to give students a strong foundation of skills. We strongly encourage all students taking classes to include ballet in their weekly dance schedule to help them excel and progress in their dance education. There will be an emphasis on technique, poise, rhythm, and self-discipline. Principles related to body alignment, muscle control, timing, and spatial awareness will be investigated as well.
