Classical Ballet

CLASSICAL BALLET

It all starts with classical training, which is the basis of all forms of dance. The basic principles of classical ballet include correct posture, turn out, quality of movement, balance, technique, musicality and coordination. Ballet stresses the academic technique developed through the centuries of the existence of ballet. In other words, classical ballet can be defined as dance studied in the tradition that has been passed down, relatively unchanged at its core, since the birth of the technique.  For students who are excited about ballet and students who dream of being on stage, Tuzer Dance School offers a ballet curriculum of increasingly demanding classes designed to expand and improve their technical skills.




DIRECTOR / INSTRUCTOR
Tanju Tuzer

Tanju Tuzer is from Istanbul, Turkey and at the age of nine Tanju began his dance training with the Ankara State Conservatory. At eighteen years old he joined the Turkish Ballet and continued his studies with a scholarship to the Royal Ballet in London, dancing in European companies before joining New York’s Harkness Ballet in 1970. After five years with Harkness, Tanju rejoined John Neumiere’s Hamburg Ballet in 1975.  In 1977, Tanju and Patricia Tuzer opened their first ballet school. In 1985, as their reputation spread and enrollment grew, they designed the current facility in Richardson, where they remain principal teachers. For forty years, students of the school and Tuzer Ballet Company have danced in Tuzer-choreographed versions of classic ballets.
