Description

In this exciting dance class, students will be introduced to the style of ballet. Students will be learning the basic technique of ballet. Ballet is the foundation for all the other styles of dance. The children will also be learning a ballet dance to a Christian song and will learn about how dance can be used as a way to worship. They will have the opportunity to perform the dance in a Variety Show. Children should wear comfortable clothes to dance class (leotards, tights, leggings, t-shirts, etc.) and will need a pair of pink ballet shoes. The costume purchased for this class will be kept by the students once the show is over. This class is a fun and exciting introductory class to the style of ballet.
