Class Descriptions

Ballet Designed for students with a sound foundation in ballet technique, this class focuses on maintaining correct placement while moving, and strengthening the abdominal core, back, and legs in all positions.
Pointe Strength Training Designed for students with no prior training in pointe shoes, this class refines placement and increases leg and foot strength with an emphasis on cross-training exercises and appropriate strength training and pointe preparation. This class is also appropriate for students who have trained at other schools in Pre-Pointe shoes only. Students should NOT purchase pointe shoes for this Class.
Pointe Designed for students with 6 months or more of training in pointe shoes, this class introduces multiple exercises away from the barre, and builds strength for single-leg exercises on pointe.
Jazz Students learn the basics of classical and contemporary jazz technique while improving rhythm, motor skills and flexibility. Class is set to upbeat, familiar music.
Modern Students explore various movement styles, spatial relationships and rhythmic patterns in a structured class environment. The class emphasizes development of core body strength, articulation of the spine, and personal expression.
