Ballet Lessons in Bellevue and Kirkland, WA
Ballet has enchanted dancers and audiences since the 1500s. It originated in Italy, but it spread to France when Catherine de Medici married King Henry II and introduced ballet into the French court. Today, ballet dancers perform around the world.
If your son or daughter wants to learn the art of ballet, there’s no better place than Crescendo Dance Academy. We teach not only ballet technique, but also the terminology and etiquette behind this unforgettable dance form.
What Dancers Experience in Our Ballet Dance Classes
At each ballet class in our Bellevue, WA studio, dancers take part in the following activities:
- Barre exercises
- Center floor work
- Across-the-floor combinations
As they master ballet techniques, dancers become better aware of their bodies. They develop advanced posture, style, and expression.
If your child isn’t sure which dance class to take, ballet is a good place to start. Ballet provides a core foundation for all dance styles. Thus, your child could use ballet as a springboard for jazz, contemporary, or hip hop. Or, he or she could continue in ballet to reach advanced performance levels.
