BASIC 1,2 & 3 


BASIC 1,2 & 3

The basic levels introduce a broader range of technical skills based on the ballet syllabus. There is continued emphasis on proper alignment, posture, and placement based on the individual student’s physique. Dancers develop strength, control and flexibility. Head and Body direction are introduced by the end of the Basic 2 year and will become more integrated into larger movement patterns in Basic 3. Musicality in emphasized,  rhythms and musical accents are explored well as the difference between a tango, waltz, mazurka and a polonaise.
