Ballet I (Standard)

Credits: 1

Ballet I provides training in the fundamentals of classical ballet. It focuses on acquiring basic ballet technique and terminology through the examination and assimilation of proper body alignment, turn-out, and muscle awareness. Students will learn ballet positions, terminology, proper use of the arms-legs-feet-back. Instruction will concentrate on imparting correct ballet training while students gain musicality, flexibility, coordination, agility, improved balance, and a sense of space. Completion of one credit of Ballet I results in the waiver of one credit of physical education, but may not be substituted for Introduction to Physical Education.
