Focusing on pure technique, ballet is the foundation of all dance forms. Dancers will move through a series of exercises beginning at the barre then moving to the center and performing combinations including balancing exercises, turns, leaps, and jumps. Ballet develops the dancer’s alignment, balance, flexibility, grace, and poise.

Leotards, tights, and hair pulled back are encouraged but not mandatory for studio classes. Mostly, we want students to be excited and comfortable in what they are wearing. We ask that clothes are not excessively baggy and students wear true ballet shoes and not the slippers that are often sold in department stores. This is for the safety of our dancers. Dancer’s Edge has a large bin of used shoes available for all students to borrow when they are here for class.
