Continuing Primary Ballet invites students into the magical enchantment of classical ballet. It presents ballet as a fun and creative learning experience, but is structured enough so that the student begins to learn ballet technique through body awareness and become able to recall movement from memory. This class is ideal for students who have taken Creative Primary Ballet, but are not yet ready for the full structure of a classical ballet class.
