Ballet 101

In weekly classes students will learn basic ballet positions and vocabulary/terminology, as well as the structure of a standard ballet class (Starting at the barre and moving into introductory center). This class is designed to build a strong core, beautiful lines, and a healthy body with fine posture and poise.  For a student to make appropriate progress in other dance forms, the study of ballet is necessary; especially for those seeking to join our competition teams. 

Some students spend more than two years in level 101 as their minds and bodies develop and adapt to working in harmony, while others progress more quickly.

 

Once a student has mastered the ballet technique appropriate for any level and is strong enough to accomplish particular movements, she or he will be moved up at the Instructor's and Director’s discretion.
