BALLET- ages 6-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13 & up
Ballet is the foundation of all the other dance genres. We strongly suggest accompanying all other classes with a performing or non-performing ballet class. The instructor reviews all basics introduced in combo level classes. We spend a lot of time focusing on barre work and strengthening the lower body as well as an emphasis on vocabulary and placement. As the levels ascend, we add adagio, allegro, across the floor combos, more vocabulary, facings, and offer a pointe class for those who are truly serious about Ballet. We also incorporate foot exercises with a theraband, tennis ball, and stabilization/balance increments are added to strengthen and stretch out the feet. 1-2 assistants in each class. Levels are categorized by age for your convenience. Ages 6-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13 & up. 1 hour class. Performs in the recital. Pink ballet shoes required.
Black leotard and pink tights only. No skirts.
