The Ridgefield School of Dance Explains Why Ballet is The Basis of All Forms of Dance, Ridgefield, Connecticut

Ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance, and the faculty at The Ridgefield School of Dance knows this better than anyone else. The instructors at this Ridgefield, CT-based dance school are current and former professional dancers, so they have firsthand knowledge of just how important the basics of ballet are to other disciplines.

Even if your child is more interested in a tap class or musical theater dance, the instructors at The Ridgefield School of Dance recommend starting with ballet as it provides the building blocks for all dance techniques.

Everything a dancer learns in Ballet is fundamental in other forms of dance—from posture, alignment, flexibility, transitions, balance, coordination to musicality, artistry and discipline. Taking Ballet will enhance your dancer's performance in other disciplines offered at the school, including Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Contemporary and Musical Theatre Dance. 

In The Ridgefield School of Dance’s contemporary studios, small class sizes allows instructors to focus on teaching proper technique to your dancer. Many of their dancers audition for and accepted into highly competitive Summer Dance Programs offered by the world's leading Ballet companies. More than half of their students also take up to six additional classes a week in other disciplines. The studio offers dance classes for pre-school and up, as well as classes for adults. To learn more about the free trial class for prospective students, call (203) 894-5957. For more on classes at the dance studio, visit the website.
