Recent enhancements to our ballet program will secure the style, dedication, and reputation ballet has established. Our ballet program begins with a Cecchetti Method base to develop technique and placement, and concludes with the Russian Method for improved performance and movement quality.
Through our Ballet program, students will be able to identify and demonstrate both basic and advanced ballet movements and positions, establish a correct understanding of body alignment, and illustrate proper class etiquette. Students presenting the necessary skills and growth in ballet will have the opportunity for more advanced training in a Pointe Technique class.
At MADPAC, we offer a wide range of classes for students ages 7 - 12 years old. Whether your child is new to dance or looking for a more advanced challenge, we've got a class for you!
