Ballet is a great workout in addition to being the foundation for all technical dance. It's a great place to start and always to come back to. Ballet has many benefits to offer students at every level, which is why even Pro football players take it!
Through ballet lessons with me, you will stabilize find better balance and control, strengthen, tone, and elongate your muscles, have increased flexibility and mobilization, improve your coordination and confidence, and much more.
My ballet lessons cover basics of posture, placement, alignment, and turnout. We begin practicing essentials such as positions, plies, tendus, pirouettes and more. Once the student shows proficiency in these basics, we move into more advanced movement and choreography. There is strong focus on technical precision and skill to ensure students are learning the correct foundation so they get the maximum benefit out of their ballet lessons. Lessons may include barre (chair) or floor barre warm-up, stretching, conditioning, across the floor and more.
Since ballet is the foundation of all technical dance, it is the first place you should start if you’re looking to learn other styles of dance or even continue dancing on a more professional level. It is also the best training to revisit, as even it’s most basic exercises can always help improve technique. This makes ballet a great style of dance and exercise to practice at any age and level.
You will feel your physical progress and be left with a sense of overall well-being, as well as see your improvements and accomplishment as a dancer.
