Ballet I will introduce children to the art of classical ballet in a fun, positive environment. We will learn the five parts of a traditional ballet class and foundational technique as well as musicality, etiquette, and terminology. Students with previous ballet experience will take this class as Ballet II, reinforcing positions and building new technique onto previously mastered skills. All students will get to perform in The Nutcracker, but those who wish to receive principle, dance-heavy roles and to experience the ballet rehearsal process must concurrently enroll in Performance Ensemble.
Friday, 6/1, 6 p.m.
