Recreational Program

Introduction

Ballet training benefits children in all areas of life. It teaches children poise and confidence, promotes physical strength, improves concentration, develops understanding of music and rhythm, and helps develop social skills. For those who want to experience other forms of dance, ballet provides a strong foundation. Many students from our recreational program go on to join our pre-professional program.
