Why Choose Us For Ballet Dance Classes?

Ballet is the fundamental of dance technique as it develops grace, flexibility, strength and balance. We recommend taking Ballet by itself or as an added fundamental class weekly to support any other dance style like Jazz, Tap or Hip Hop, even gymnastics and ice skating.

The classes offered begin with PreBallet/Tap combo class for ages 4-5, pre-primary ballet for children aged 5 and older, primary for children aged 6 and older, grade 1 ballet ages 7-9 and so on. The grades of ballet do not follow the same ages as public school grades. Our office staff can assist in selecting the proper class for a beginning ballet student. We also offer teen recreational ballet for students who have not taken ballet as younger children and who wish to take ballet without following a syllabus.

Why is dance important?


First and foremost, dance is important because it's fun! Our teachers are dancers themselves and share their passion with their students. Additionally, the National Dance Education Organization says that dance trains a better combination of flexibility, strength, endurance, and coordination than most other physical pursuits. But beyond that, educators are increasingly recognizing the importance of the arts on cognitive development. Creative and aesthetic pursuits like dance have been repeatedly linked to improved physical, mental, and social well being, as well as academic achievement. More than ever, dance and the arts are being recognized as essential pieces of a complete education by leading teachers, administrators, and educational philosophers.Why start dance lessons now?

Whether your child has been dancing for years or has never taken a class before, early primary age is a great time to start. At 6-9 year old, kids are developing the motor skills and awareness to tackle all the basics (and then some) to many formal dance styles. Pediatricians, NGOs, and other child health experts the world over laud the physical, mental, and social benefits of dance for children. Plus, at this age kids are more able than most adults to learn new things quickly.

Why Ballet?

While there are many different styles of dance, Ballet is a cornerstone of most formal dance instruction. Ballet teaches strength, balance, flexibility, coordination, and movement skills which are the foundation from everything from Hip Hop to Salsa. It's also an excellent form of exercise and fosters both discipline and community building among students (all reasons Columbus State University gives for teaching kids Ballet). In this age range, classes are all about mastering the fundamentals. Our teachers cultivate a love of Ballet and dance while working with students to perfect age-appropriate techniques.
