8th Grade and Older Ballet

8th Grade and Older for 2022-2023

The foundation for most other dance forms, Ballet is the most challenging yet rewarding style of dance offered at Creative Motion Dance. Because of the precise technique, Ballet teaches students alignment, placement, balance and grace. Students who begin their dance training in Ballet can quickly and easily transition into other techniques and styles of dance. Dancers will explore how to express themselves with their entire body while utilizing choreography with smooth transitions to give their performance a more poetic feel. Dancers wishing to enroll in the Pointe/Preparation class must be enrolled in Senior Ballet.
