Disciplined training in classical ballet technique provides a foundation for the development of the dancer. Dance in Motion is known for building strong dancers with solid technique, students will learn proper body alignment, stretching and strengthening techniques, coordination and gracefulness. Because ballet provides the foundation for all styles of dance, it is not only essential for the child with interest in classical ballet training, but also for the dancer looking to improve his or her technique in all other forms for dance. Ballet as we know it today was created in France under Louis XIV. Because of its origin, the same French terminology is used in all classical ballet classes around the world, starting in our youngest classes, our instructors use and teach proper dance vocabulary.
