Classical Ballet is taught at DCS using the Cecchetti Method. Ballet is the basis of all dance. Basic body positions, barre, stretching, center work, proper alignment, will help the dance increase flexibility, build strength and gain grace. Proper French vocabulary is used and this ballet class will build a strong foundation for all types of dance. (Lyrical Dance for the older student is incorporated with our ballet classes.) Pointe shoes are recommended to the individual student only when her muscles are physically ready.
Dress code: Pink ballet shoes and any color leotard and tights. (Dance skirts optional.)
