Description:  Ballet, beautiful and poised, has been revered for centuries. It is the basis of many other dance forms, and is used by sports athletes for injury prevention.  As exercise, ballet lengthens and strengthens the whole body simultaneously through strong body placement. Learning the art of ballet offers accomplishment and knowledge -- and it’s fun! Foundations of Ballet provides a safe, doable atmosphere by teaching fundamental exercises, repeating them, and building upon them.


Class plans include:
- contemporary warm-up
- barre exercises assisted by one or two hands on a chair
- center exercises without chairs (including our favorite arm work-out!)
- putting previous exercises together into a short piece of choreography
- end of class stretch
- Goals: greater length and strength, strong balletic posture, and good soreness tomorrow!
