Why Ballet?



Becoming a dancer, a lifetime quest, involves more than talent, desire and discipline. These are the stones for the building of a house. They remain only that unless there is a structure, and that cannot be accomplished without design.


You want to take your child to ballet class. Where do you go? Because dancers need to be trained at an early age, the parents’ choice of a first teacher is central to their development over the years. Even if neither the child or the parents envision dance as a profession but simply are looking for an extracurricular activity, the choices need to be informed ones.


For human beings, dancing is as natural as breathing. We have forgotten this adults but not as children. Dancing gives us pleasure. It teaches us good posture and how to become more graceful. It establishes an awareness of the body, and an appreciation for what the body can do. It also aids in the physical and mental development of a child. It teaches discipline and self reliance. Ballet class offers children the opportunity to become aware of spatial relationships. Through the act of dancing we share our sense of well-being through harmony in motion.
