Ballet & Pointe The foundation of all other dance forms, these classes introduce the student to the joy of ballet dance. Students will develop grace, good posture, musicality and balance. Several levels are offered and each level repeats and introduces new skills, building upon a foundation of technique that can carry them all the way to the goal of Pointe work if desired. Ballet is highly recommended as a starting point for any student interested in dance. If you desire to try out for your high school dance team, taking a ballet class concurrently with Jazz Funk/Hip Hop will improve your chances of getting on your school’s team.
