Classical Ballet & Pointe
AGES: 8 and Up
Ballet is the foundation of all great dancers and has been proven to be beneficial to all dance forms. In these dance classes, dancers will train their bodies carefully, developing strength, control, coordination and line. While dancers will spend time working on the technical and physical aspects of ballet, they will also learn to connect with the steps and music to bring artistry to their movement. Students are placed in classes according to age, dance experience, and technique level.
For those dancers who are older but just starting their dance journey, we have beginning level classes to introduce them to the world of ballet. Ballet I is for dancers ages 8 and up, and Adult/Teen Ballet is for dancers ages 13 and up.
Ballet II and Intermediate Ballet, which both meet twice a week, are by teacher recommendation.
Our Ballet Technique class is a great opportunity for extra training for our Intermediate Ballet and Pointe dancers. This class does not participate in the Spring Concert.
Pointe is a beautiful form of classical ballet to which most female ballet dancers aspire. In these classes, students will take their ballet training to the next level, learning how to incorporate their knowledge of proper technique into their pointe work. These classes may only be taken with recommendation from an Angela Floyd Schools’ instructor.
