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.
