About the Class
Students study the foundations of ballet alignment, basic positions, carriage of the arms, and class etiquette are introduced. Dancers learn about articulation of the feet and ankles, rotation of the hips (or “turn out”), skips, and jumps. As they progress, students explore challenging barre exercises, turns, leaps, slow balances (adagio exercises), and complex combinations. Ballet is the foundation of all dance forms and all students are offered the opportunity to partake in Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) examinations.
