Beginning Ballet

  • Joy of Motion 5207 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20015 United States (map)


Beauty, flow and elegance are inherent in the elements of ballet. Ballet is a classical dance form that can be mastered by itself or used as a technical base or supplement to other dance forms. Classes focus on overall body alignment and awareness with emphasis on proper usage of feet and legs and execution of turnout. Carriage and usage of upper torso and arms are also stressed. Traditional barre work, center work and combinations are included in all classes.

Beginning: For students with some training in the selected style or a similar style. We recommend our Basics, or Intro, level enrollment class as a prerequisite, or at least 3 months prior training. Beginner level is excellent for students returning to dance after an extended absence as well as students who wish to continue training that was recently begun.

Led by TFD artistic director, Stuart Loungway.
