Ballet

Ballet is the foundation for all forms of dance. Class begins with barre, working to perfect balance and placement, which leads into progressively more intricate center exercises. The study of Ballet involves the enjoyment of movement, expression to music, combined with discipline. Ballet is a highly technical form of dance with an anatomical approach.  
Dress Code: Solid color leotard, pink tights, pink or black ballet shoes, hair in a bun.  

Pointe

Pointe work is traditionally performed by female dancers in a hard “blocked” Pointe shoe. Pointe takes sufficient muscle development, strength & ballet technique, so students must receive permission to begin Pointe.
