Classes

Pre-ballet I

This class is designed to help children find and enjoy the expressive art of dancing through creative movement while preparing children for the demands of ballet. The pre-dance class maintains an atmosphere of exploration and discovery.

Pointe I

First and foremost, UDDT believes in the importance of your child’s well-being and future. Students are introduced to Pointé only after their feet, legs and bone structure have begun to mature and only after several years of serious, quality training that has developed the appropriate muscles. If I feel that the student is not yet ready for Pointé, please realize that it is with the student’s best interest in mind.

Classical Ballet I

Typically, professional ballet schools around the world do not begin serious ballet training until the age of 9 or 10, when the student is physically and mentally prepared to begin the disciplines of classic training. True progress is made very slowly and consists not only of new steps and combinations, but also repetitions of the basics needed to acquire strength, correct body placement grace and technical mastery. Attendance in class at each level is absolutely mandatory for optimum progress and advancement to the next level.

Jazz I
