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.
Advanced Beginning (Adv. Beg.): exercising and building upon a working knowledge. For students with a thorough working knowledge of the style. We recommend at least 1 year of prior training. This level appeals to many students and it is common to find a wide range of students attending this level.
