Class Description

Beginner Ballet:

This class will slowly introduce dancers to new vocabulary, in addition to refining basic ballet steps. Class is divided into Barre and Center so that dancers can continue strengthening their core, coordination, and balance independently. A basic knowledge of vocabulary is suggested but not required! All levels welcome. 

Basic Ballet Barre:

This class serves as a non-competitive introduction to the study of classical ballet. Exercises will focus on enforcing vocabulary and etiquette, as well as slowly conditioning proper alignment, core strength, and flexibility. Basic ballet steps and vocabulary are taught at this level, and all levels are welcome! No prior experience is necessary.
