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.
