Ballet (mandatory for all students)
Ballet holds tradition as one of the world's most elegant dance arts where placement of the body, poise and proper alignment are highlighted. We utilize the appropriate classical terminology and include barre work, adagio, petite allegro, grand allegro and turns. Classes range in level depending on student's ability.
Dancers will improve agility, coordination and grace, along with building self-esteem, stage presence and the ability to interact with other children in a structured setting. Utilizing magic wands, scarves and ballet basics, even the youngest rising star can feel the excitement of ballet learning steps such as a plié, tendu, soutenu and sauté!
This style of dance borrows from a collection of dance movements developed in modern and postmodern dance, as well as an array of still developing philosophies about body/mind interconnectedness.
Modern dance, also known as Contemporary, invigorates the body and liberates the mind by challenging the conventional forms of dance training. Modern is many times seen as "unbalancing ballet" as many movements are asymmetrical, literally off balance and executed using a breath-release methodology.
