Learning is fun and upbeat, creativity continues to be explored as students are asked to imagine their own dances and worlds, using their bodies to communicate to an audience just like professional dancers! Important lessons learned at this level: “dancing can be hard work” & “we can make hard work fun!”. Elementary level classes introduce students for the first time to a "full" ballet class format.
