This is the year formal ballet instruction begins. Proper body alignment is stressed along with the proper use of Plie (to bend) and Tendu (to stretch,) the building blocks of all the dance vocabulary which is to follow. Barre work is extended to 20 minutes along with an increased emphasis on ballet terminology. This a pivotal time in a young dancer’s life because the tone of the class is now starting to move away from a “play time” atmosphere to one that poses greater challenges. Don’t worry though we still keep it fun. The discipline inherent in dance training is a process that we take one gentle step at a time.
