Primary Ballet

The Primary Ballet Program is where concentrated ballet training at Tanner Dance begins. Dancers learn basic ballet positions, body placement, and work on extending through their limbs. Elements of balance, coordination and specified shapes of ballet provide the beginning framework for these young dancers.  Classes also include musical and rhythmical exploration and imagery while working in natural rotation.
