In this class, students learn the fundamentals of ballet technique, in a manner both safe and challenging. This is an absolute beginning course: EVERYONE is welcome! In barre work and center/traveling exercises, the class will begin to develop a working understanding of basic positions of the arms and legs; individual steps such as turns and jumps; and simple combinations. Through repetition and logical progression artistry, musicality, strength and coordination will develop and grow. This course may be repeated for credit. *NOTE: students can receive either partial academic credit for this course (credit which doesn’t count toward the number required for graduation, but which does appear on one’s final transcript) or Physical Education credit. For students who wish PE credit, please register through the PE department.
