Most people associate ballet with history and culture. This is because ballet has been used as a form of entertainment and expression since the 15th century. There is a stereotype that ballet is just for girls, but that is far from the truth. It has been used by people of all cultures, ages, and genders. Ballet has been the basis for all genres of dance from the very beginning. Without it, you wouldn’t have the technique and stances that you are used to seeing in modern forms of dance.
It is extremely beneficial to learn the basics of ballet because this is where the five positions of the feet were created. By mastering these positions, you are able to take your dance to the next level. Our ballet classes in San Antonio give you the knowledge you need to perfect your skills in dance and take yourself to the next level.
