Classical ballet training is characterized by the following elements:
graceful, flowing movements
classical form: turn-out and pointe work
balance and symmetry
emphasis on story ballets and narrative
elaborate sets and costumes
At Twin Cities School of Dance we focus on the fundamental techniques, positions, musicality and etiquette. We offer a range of ballet training starting at 2 years old. For our more serious ballet dancers and those intended to pursue a career in dance after high school, we offer Twin Cities Ballet Company whose spots are filled through auditions held each August.
Ballet dancers are expected to wear a leotard, tights and ballet slippers and hair in a neat bun for each class.
