Ballet teaches precision, grace, expression, and alignment while also increasing strength, flexibility, and body awareness. These valuable qualities learned throughout class create a strong foundation for all other styles of dance!
At CDS we offer Beginning (coming this fall), Beginning/Intermediate, and Intermediate ballet classes. Curious about which class is the right fit for you? Contact us!
