Tuesday | 5:30-7:00 PM | Ages 11 & Up
Ballet is the foundation for all forms of dance. In this class we will focus on proper technique, strength, flexibility, musicality, memory work and ballet terminology. We begin at the barre for warm up, center and across the floor work, and finish with adagio. This class aims to make ballet fun for all students. We will have different activities throughout the semester to change the stigma that ballet is boring. Some weeks we will have a theme (think 80’s, tie dye, favorite Disney character and so on) and we will use contemporary music often. Students should wear appropriate ballet attire (pink ballet shoes, tights, leotard, skirt or shorts and in accordance with Elevate dress code). Please no jewelry (stud earrings are okay), hair secured back and out of the face, and no chewing gum. Please bring a water bottle if so desired. End of semester performance opportunity available.This is an Arts Academy class. Class length is 32 weeks divided into 2 – 16 week semesters.
