6th-12th Grade Ballet & Pre-Pointe


WHAT IS BALLET?


A classical form of dance focusing on proper body alignment and fluid movement. Barre, center floor, and across the floor progressions are all used to develop proper ballet technique. Ballet is the foundation upon which most dance forms are based.


This class is for the more serious dancer (6th grade-12th grade), who wishes to focus on technique. We understand that going en pointe is a big goal for any Ballet lover. We also know that in order to start en Pointe, a dancer must be fully equip in muscles and techniques. For the safety of our dancers, it is important to note that the dance teacher will notify a student when they are ready for their Pointe shoes. Until then, dancers must work hard on muscle strengthening and poise in Pre-Pointe.

Grace, poise, discipline, strength, flexibility
