Classical ballet is known as the “backbone” of dance and the most formal style, adhering to traditional technique. Our ballet program stresses the method and execution of movement. The foundation of the dance consists of five basic positions, all performed with focus on the turnout. Students are carefully instructed so they may learn the names, meanings, and precise technique of each movement as well as grace, elegance, flexibility, stamina, discipline, and endurance. Emphasis is placed on building strength mostly in the lower body and the core, a strong essential origination of support that is necessary for all movements in ballet.  Precise attention is also placed on strengthening the feet and ankles, allowing dancers to be promoted to pointe.
