Dance education is a rewarding process even for students who choose non-dance careers. They develop skills which they carry throughout their lives including self-motivation, self-discipline, poise, grace, and an appreciation for the arts.
At Ballet Society, as our dancers progress within the art form, our professional faculty and staff encourage the development of additional qualities and skills. Students are guided towards exploring and expanding their abilities to:
- work independently or in a group
- take direction
- concentrate on specific challenges
- focus their thoughts
- develop diligence and discipline
- improve and perfect skills
- develop flexibility and adaptability to change
- think quickly under pressure
- access energy and stamina
- develop an engaging physical presence
The ballet syllabus introduces students to progressing level of study that incorporates elements from major training styles, including Royal Academy of Dance, Cecchetti, and Vaganova. This provides a sound foundation for those who aspire to be professional dancers as well as those who choose to dance recreationally.
