Ballet III (Ages 8-9)

WednesdayWednesdays
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Ages 8–9

Students will strengthen their ballet technique while learning the art of performance. Barre work is introduced, and combinations continue to increase in difficulty.  Students will begin to develop the skill of retaining more complex movement sequences. Emphasis is on the enjoyment of dance within the respect and discipline of classical ballet training.

Required Supplies:

Students must wear their class gear at all times. Girls should wear a royal blue leotard, pink or skin toned footed ballet tights, and pink or skin toned ballet slippers (canvas or leather). Boys should wear black tights and white t-shirt with black ballet slippers (canvas or leather). Children who are gender expansive may wear whichever suits them. Note- tights and shoes must match (i.e. pink shoes/pink tights or skin tone shoes/skin tone tights).
