Ballet is the basis for all dance training. In this class, students will learn intermediate barre exercises, center floor work, and progressions across the floor. Ballet develops essential techniques of balance, control, and memory. It also promotes flexibility and muscular strength while stressing correct body alignment. Students will perform in the Contemporary Dance Showcase.
*Note: a $60 costume fee will be collected in January for this class for the performance at the end of the semester.
