BALLET

At LT Dance Studio ballet is taught as a technical skill as well as an art form. Our experienced instructors guide our students to achieve greatness through constant encouragement. Our positive, supportive class  environment  is an essential element to our students’ achievements. All LTD ballet classes are influenced by RAD and CDTA Ballet. Our students learn syllabus work to develop their individual body alignment and increase their overall technique. We offer potential Ballet exam opportunities with CDTA.

 

BALLET ATTIRE

HAIR: Hair is to be worn in a tight-bun to every class. Students may choose to style their hair in a high-bun or low-bun, depending on hair length and personal preference. Any fringe/bangs must be kept off of the students face to avoid distraction during class.

UNIFORM: A body suit must be worn to all ballet classes. We understand that all of our dancers come in different shapes and sizes, with that in mind we do not ask that all dancers conform to the exact same style of body suit. Varied styles may be worn, with any chosen sleeve length, best suited for the comfort of each dancer. Listed below is a guideline detailing our preference for each level.
