Class Description

In this class, your child will focus on the basics that are needed to form a strong ballet technique. The class will focus on foot work, musicality, dynamics and correct ballet positions. It is important that dancers learn, from a young age, how to gain physical strength, preventing them from injury and to build a clean technique. To end the class, there will be a fun series of exercises that are focused on movement and strength.  By doing these weekly classes, your young dancer will not only have the opportunity to express themselves in a safe space but they will also fall in love with the beauty of Ballet.
