Three Truths about Ballet
What is "ballet" ? To the majority of the public, ballet summons up a picture in one's mind of fluffy tutus, glittering tiaras, shiny pink pointe shoes and silly giggling girls. That is the child's dress-up play version of what ballet really is. Ballet requires much more than being able to play dress up. Learning to dance does not work like school; where everyone is put in a class with people their same age and they all move along through life at roughly the same pace. There isn't a magic age where you magically get you pointe shoes. Everyone does not graduate into being a "professional" all of a sudden when you are done going through the levels of ballet classes. If you are interested in learning a little bit about what being dedicated to ballet looks like, we have compiled a short list of answers to three huge questions that we get asked the most. We are here to work with both the students who wish to dance has a fun after-school recreational activity, as well as to train up young ballet dancers who are hoping to become paid ballerinas one day.
