This classical dance form emphasizes grace and precision. Students will learn basic ballet terminology with an emphasis on body alignment, weight placement, and correct use of positions.  Dancers will use the barre to stretch, strengthen, and tone muscles. As students advance, the barre will be used as a preparation for turns and center work as well as combinations across the floor.  Emphasis will later be put upon perfecting basic skills, turns, leaps, cleanliness of line, extensions, and pirouettes as well as combinations.
