Erica Trivett instructs the following:
Ballet: Helps to build a strong base, clean technique and proper alignment, all of which are essential for any kind of dance. Barre exercises, combinations across the floor and adagio are taught to live piano accompaniment.
Level: 1 is for dancers with anywhere from one to four years experience who enjoy a slower-paced class with less complex dance steps.
