This class introduces students to the traditions of ballet in an open, fun environment, where foundations of ballet technique are administered in an age-appropriate way. Students are encouraged and empowered to foster their strengths in this challenging form of dance, while building a basic ballet vocabulary: the positions of the legs and arms, dancing at the barre, center work, and dancing across the floor.
