Weekly – Beginning August 15
(suggested ages 16 and up)
This class is designed for all skill levels and a variety of ages. Rest assured that the class will move at a pace directed by the students’ abilities and interests. We will focus on learning ballet basics such as positions and beginning terminology, as well as putting moves together to create a routine. This class would be perfect for a student who wants to have fun and learn something new!
Fall 2019 Dance Recital: We will perform in a recital at the end of the year and purchase a costume for the show.
- Students should wear dancewear, such as leotards with tights and/or skirts, yoga pants, etc.
- Ballet shoes should be pink for female students and black for male students for the recital (either is acceptable for practice). They should be leather or like leather, not house-shoe type shoes.
Hair: Hair needs to be worn out of the face, in ponytail/bun or pulled half up.
