Ballet for kids

CLASSICAL BALLET PROVIDES THE TECHNICAL FOUNDATION FOR MOST ALL OTHER DANCE FORMS. WITH A SOLID BALLET FOUNDATION, DANCERS CAN TRANSFER THEIR SKILLS INTO RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS ,MODERN, JAZZ, OR ANY OTHER DANCE STYLE THEY PURSUE. THOUGH BALLET-BASED DANCERS CAN ADAPT TO OTHER RELATED DANCE STYLES QUICKLY, THE OPPOSITE CANNOT BE SAID FOR THOSE DANCERS WHO COME FROM OTHER DANCE TECHNIQUES. MOST DANCERS FROM OTHER DANCE GENRES RARELY CAN WALK INTO A BALLET CLASS AND KNOW WHAT TO DO.


IT IS STRONGLY SUPPORTED IN THE DANCE WORLD, AND IT STILL CANNOT BE STRESSED ENOUGH, THAT TAKING BALLET IS THE PLACE TO START FOR DANCERS OF ANY AGE--EVEN THOSE STUDENTS WHO WANT TO MAINLY FOCUS ON ANOTHER DANCE STYLE. THE RISING TREND IS TO PRODUCE A VERSATILE, WELL-ROUNDED PERFORMER--AS DEMONSTRATED REPEATEDLY ON THE TV SHOW 'SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE'. THE CLASSICALLY TRAINED DANCER ALMOST ALWAYS HAS THE EDGE ON THE OTHER CONTESTANTS. BALLROOM DANCERS, PROFESSIONAL SKATERS, AND BROADWAY PERFORMERS, AMONG OTHERS, ARE AN EXAMPLE OF THOSE WHO TRAIN IN BALLET FOR THEIR PROFESSIONS.


SO DON'T FORGET BALLET! IT PROMOTES BETTER POSTURE, TONES THE BODY, DEVELOPS POISE AND BODY AWARENESS, PROMOTES FLEXIBILITY, AND RELIEVES STRESS. IT HELPS CHILDREN WITH THEIR CREATIVE THINKING SKILLS , HELPS THEM LEARN ABOUT MUSIC AND RHYTHM, HELPS THEM DEVELOP CREATIVE EXPRESSION.

Unique Ballet Class for kids with ORGDA:

We believe classical ballet is the foundation upon which any other dance style should be built. Ballet students learn to control their bodies and gain necessary strength and dexterity to be able to excel in other dance styles such as Rhythmic Gymnastics and Modern.The basic ballet techniques we teach is the classic Vaganova style ballet (think of Russian ballet). Body movement expression is closer to the French court ballet style.It might seem demanding, but believe us you will be surprised what kind of impact it a honed over years training technique can have.Our principal teacher is Sean Weng .who has been study ballet professionally at Shanghai dance school, and Graduated from Shanghai Theatre Academy.He is also the one and only Chinese dancer who has worked with the famous French choreographer Maurice Béjart in Béjart Ballet Lausanne . All the technical terms in the ballet class with Sean will be traditional in French which helps your child/ren learn more about the ballet culture and movement key informations.
