Ballet is the foundation for all dance styles. At DFJ it is required to be enrolled in a ballet class to enroll in lyrical, jazz, contemporary or modern. Tap and Hip Hop do not have the ballet reqirement.
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 eventually the use of pointe shoes.
Pointe training is offered to dancers that have completed our pre-pointe program and have been invited by the teacher. Pointe training is not for everyone, but everyone can benefit from, and enjoy ballet on flat shoes too!
