For dancers who are new to ballet or moving up from our Pre-Ballet level. Girls and boys are recommended to attend classes twice a week, especially dancers who have a goal of going into pointe shoes. Twice weekly classes at this level are needed to begin acquiring the strength and technique to safely wear pointe shoes in a few years.
This class introduces classical ballet training in a more structured environment.
Floor exercises develop feet and leg muscles while safely gaining flexibility and building core strength.
Barre work builds the ballet vocabulary to cover the fundamental positions and steps and laying the foundation for the higher levels.
Center work includes balance, jumps and beginning the study of turns.
Dancers move across the floor where coordination and musicality are the focus.
Class ends with port de bras and reverence.
Classes are taught to challenge and encourage the dancer while fostering their love of dance. Each week the syllabus introduces a new movement in a progressive manner to carefully build technique.
