Barre exercises develop strength and flexibility, while contemporary center work allows the student to practice barre work as well as contemporary technique. Ballet is strongly recommended as a compliment to other classes as the terminology and placement learned in ballet carries over to all other forms of dance. This class will be taught in a more relaxed atmosphere using current music and modern approach.

Classes consist of warm-ups, floor progressions, and center combinations. Ballet is strongly recommended to be taken as a pre-requisite or in conjunction with all Jazz classes.

Ballet Tech is strongly recommended as a compliment to other classes as the terminology and placement learned in ballet carries over to all forms of dance.
