Ballet Level 3 and Above, Ballet Technique and Open Ballet

Students will develop grace, learn body placement, improve posture and build strength and coordination. We recommend taking ballet as it is a fundamental class to support all other dance styles. For advanced level dancers’ ballet is highly recommended.

Ballet Level 3 is for dancers who have taken 3- 5 years of ballet, know all ballet position and arm placement.  They also know all their ballet terms and their definition.
