Ballet Technique Class Policy
At SESD, a proper understanding of and the ability to execute correct technique is our highest priority. Just as you cannot build a sturdy house on sinking sand, you cannot build strong dancers without a strong foundation. Dancers will neither perform to their highest potential nor develop individual artistry if they are not confident in their training. Ballet is the most technical of all dance forms, and is the building block from which all other dance forms grow. Ballet training helps dancers understand their bodies and use their muscles most effectively. Therefore, we require all dancers in level 2-6 to enroll in Ballet class if they wish to enroll in Jazz/Tap or Modern classes. Acro dancers are strongly encouraged to enroll in a Ballet or Modern technique class, though it is not required. Hip Hop and Pom/Cheer dancers are not required to enroll in an additional technique class. Flip Flop Hip Hop should be taken in addition to Foundations or Ballet/Tap/Jazz 1.
We understand multiple classes can place financial strain on families who have multiple dancers enrolled in our program. We are happy to offer multiple class discounts as well as sibling discounts, and scholarships are available on an at-need basis. Please send scholarship inquiries to our director at [email protected] or call (336) 509-8154 for more information.
