Our ballet class typically follows a structured format to provide a comprehensive learning experience. The class begins with a warm-up session to prepare the young dancers’ bodies for movement. This may include stretching exercises, basic coordination drills, and simple ballet movements. Following the warm-up, the class progresses to the center work, where students practice fundamental ballet techniques such as pliés, tendus, and relevés. They also learn basic ballet positions and work on balance and coordination exercises. After the center work, the class moves to across-the-floor exercises, where students practice traveling steps, turns, and jumps. These exercises help develop strength, agility, and spatial awareness. The class usually concludes with a cool-down and stretching session to promote flexibility and prevent muscle soreness. Throughout the class, instructors provide guidance, corrections, and encouragement to foster proper technique and a love for ballet in the young dancers.
Our class numbers are limited to ensure a high-quality learning experience for all participants, especially those with a background in ballet. Ballet serves as the foundation for most dance forms, teaching strength, coordination, posture, and flexibility in both the mind and body. In our classes, we prioritize the development of a solid ballet technique and understanding of correct body placement, use of turnout, coordination of the whole body, and musicality. Following the RAD teaching method and syllabi, our classes are designed for students who have several years of ballet experience and are ready to progress to more advanced levels, including the introduction of pointe work after a teacher assessment (11yrs up only). By keeping the class size small, we can provide individual attention and personalized instruction to help students refine their technique and reach their full potential in ballet and other dance forms.
