The class will introduce the student to classical ballet technique and continue to concentrate on developing motor skills through movement set to pop music. Ballet is the foundation for all dance. It is a disciplined and structured technique based on five positions of the feet in which the body is aligned and movement is executed. Mastering this challenging dance form produces dancers of great strength, flexibility and endurance. Typically classical music is the inspiration for ballet but this twist of using pop music is a fun and innovative means to captivate new, younger audiences. This is a wonderful way to introduce children to ballet skills, routines, rhythm, moving across the floor, stage presence, and movement skills. Children have so much fun they don’t even realize they are exercising!
