Classical ballet is any of the traditional, formal styles of ballet that exclusively employ classical ballet technique. It is known for its aesthetics and rigorous technique, its flowing, precise movements, and its ethereal qualities.
Our primary levels are a child’s introduction to classical ballet class and Acrobatic Arts. While learning to enjoy movement and music, children will also be introduced to basic ballet foot and arm positions as well as preliminary ballet steps. Great focus will be placed on learning how to participate in a ballet class setting as well as large and small motor control.
