Ballet is the foundation of most dance forms, and it combines dance with the beauty of music. The benefits of learning ballet include development of good posture and correct placement, coordination, self-discipline while improving dance technique and musicality. The training program is based on the Vaganova system.
We believe that stage experiences are precious, and our students are frequently encouraged to participate in both local and international ballet competitions. We challenge our students to achieve their very best, and we provide them with opportunities to develop their full potential.
