A formal and poised style of dance, Ballet incorporates the foundational techniques for many other dance forms. This genre of dance is very hard to master and requires much practice; focusing on flowing, precise, acrobatic movements. Music is slower, allowing students to focus on precision and elegance. Ballet shoes are required.
Pointe Ballet (Ages 12 & up)
En pointe means "on the tip" and is a part of classical Ballet technique, which developed from the desire for dancers to appear weightless and has evolved to enable dancers to dance on the tips of their toes for extended periods of time. Preparation for pointe work is a gradual process. Posture, alignment, and placement are vital. Pointe student’s hard work pays off in their development of long, graceful limbs and stunning technique! Ballet flats and Pointe shoes (pending instructor approval) are required.
