XpressIt Dance Center – Ballet
Ballet is an artistic dance form performed to music using precise and highly formalized set steps and gestures. Classical ballet, which originated in Renaissance Italy and established its present form during the 19th century, is characterized by light, graceful, fluid movements and the use of pointe shoes.
- What is Ballet Attire? Dancers must come prepared for class in studio leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet shoes. All ballet students must wear their hair back in a neat bun. We keep hair supplies at the front desk in case a student needs them. Students will pay $1.00 each time they need to use gel, hair spray, hair nets, hair bands, and/or hair pins. Studio leotards and ballet shoes may be purchased from the front office or in the online store.
- Jewelry should never be worn to class and teacher may ask students to remove jewelry while taking class. Small earrings are acceptable. The studio will not be responsible if jewelry is lost while taking class.
