Professional Ballet Dance Classes in Central Jersey
At Gotta Dance, we offer ballet dance classes with professional instruction to students of all ages and skill levels. Our classes are scheduled at convenient times and are ideal for introducing young students to dance.
Ballet is known as the foundation for any discipline of dance. From our youngest dancers to our oldest ones, Gotta Dance stresses the importance of partaking in the study of ballet. Grace, elegance, and poise are imparted to all dancers who choose to explore this gracious form of movement. Our educators at Gotta Dance work on improving the techniques of students to develop increased strength, coordination, flexibil-ity, and movement fluidity.
The Importance Of Ballet Barre Exercises
Our ballet classes begin with barre exercises, drawing from the classical tradition. This work helps to devel-op a dancer's movement vocabulary and technical toolbox. These movements are then brought to life through dynamic center instruction and across the floor work.
Classes For Both The Recreational And Dedicated Ballet Student
Our ballet classes at Gotta Dance are designed to be enjoyed by both the recreational and dedicated stu-dent with varying skill levels. For students interested in taking just one class a week, our ballet instruction offers a challenging yet fun environment to learn and participate with this classical art form. Dedicated students are encouraged to take more than one ballet class to realize their potential through the reinforce-ment of classical technique.
For the younger student looking forward to eventually dancing on Pointe, continued ballet study is the es-sential prerequisite. Only dancers who have progressed successfully through our Gotta Dance ballet sylla-bus are permitted to take pointe classes with a teacher recommendation.
Pointe is the pinnacle and most recognizable feature of ballet performance. This style of dance even re-quires a special shoe allowing dancers to dance on the 'pointe' of their toe. Due to the technical and diffi-cult nature of this form, it is only recommended for ballet dancers who display passion and commitment towards technical mastery.
Our Pointe classes are only available to upper-level students taking two or more ballet classes a week. A ballet student wishing to take pointe must secure a teacher recommendation to participate.
