Class Information

Ballet dancing is a form of dance characterized by its use of classical techniques, elegant lines and formal wear. It has been used as an art form for over three hundred years. From the first performances to modern day performances, ballet's popularity continues to grow.

The most popular type of ballet is en pointe (on toes) or "dancing on one's toes." This style requires great strength in the ankles, calves and feet; it also requires flexibility in the legs and back. Ballet dancers have traditionally worn special shoes that are designed with small pads which cover only part of their toes so that they can stay on their toes while wearing them.

Some benefits of this form of dance is that it can lead to an improved balance, while also being good for the body as it helps to improve flexibility and strength.

This class is in place for the more serious dancer and is intended as a second regular class. Students will be assessed for pointework to determine whether this is suitable for their physique before joining the class.
