Ballet

Ballet is the very foundation of dance as well as a challenging and beautiful, theatrical art form.

Class Goal
To have fun learning, making friends, and building strength, flexibility, grace, and most importantly, self-confidence.

Ballet doesn't have to be stuffy. Let's have fun! Our ballet programs are focused on learning safe and proper technique and alignment in a fun, creative, and supportive way. Students explore ballet's history and learn its terminology in order to help them build a solid dance foundation. Although we mostly use classical ballet music during class, we occasionally play "fun-sy" pop songs and use a variety of learning materials including vibrant rainbow ribbons, ballet scarves, wands, tiaras, and musical instruments in order to keep our students engaged and passionate about what they are doing and who they are becoming through dance. We also use fun props and ballet themes such as Cinderella and Swan Lake to keep students inspired and excited about coming to class each week.

We use a comprehensive and progressive curriculum and a welcoming, friendly atmosphere to help students feel included, successful, and empowered. We encourage each dancer to explore their creativity and individuality while working toward reaching their goals. Our childrens' ballet classes are the perfect intro for kids to learn the basics in a fun and imaginative way. We will learn all of our words, moves, and positions through creative and inspiring activities. Our teen and adult programs are for everyone, including beginners.
