Tiny Tot Ballet & Tap

Ballet

Because Ballet is the base and most important building block of all great dancers, we encourage all of our students to study the “foundation discipline of all dance”. In addition to the Vaganova syllabus, these classes develop poise, grace and proper body carriage. Ballet classes are designed to strengthen each dancer’s body and mind. Ballet classes stress body placement, flexibility and fluidity, which allows your dancer to reach a level of artistry unmatched by other styles of dance. This style is recommended for dancers who are seriously motivated to train.
