Dating back to the 15th century, this fascinating dance genre has a class format that begins at the barre and leads to movement in the center of the studio. Students will learn classical technique while memorizing positions and vocabulary. With a focus on proper alignment, balance, and coordination, the exercises will tone your body while promoting artistry, musicality, and flexibility. Throughout class, students are encouraged to explore choreography and have fun while learning how to move with precision and grace.
Level coordinated leotard, tights and ballet shoes are required for youth dancers. Hair should be drawn securely back or pulled up in a bun. Adults may wear yoga pants and a shirt to comfort level.
