Dancers can begin ballet at the age of
3 but with limitations as to what they can do. Ballet emphasizes proper alignment of the body focusing on turnout,
center and fluid movement of the entire body at the same time. Ballet is the most regimen and focused form of dance
demanding a lot of time and years to perfect. Class consists of barre warm up, center work, progressions across the
floor and weekly combinations.
This is an advanced form of ballet and
is what all serious ballet dancers strive to achieve and perfect. Pointe shoes or Toe shoes, as they are often
referred to, are a blocked ballet slipper that allows the dancer to stand tall on her toes. We at XDA do not allow
dancers to progress to this level until they are 12 years of age and have had several years of formal training in
Ballet. Class for Pointe consists of an advanced level of warm up and center work.
Age 7 + (Pre-Ballet - Lv 1-6): Black Leotard, Black Sports Bra
(Optional), Black Skirt (optional) Pink Footed Tights, Pink Ballet Shoes, Hair
in a Bun.
