Obviously the most important one on the training list is Classical ballet and whether students want to be classical ballet dancers or not we know that the training is invaluable for any student of dance in order to really understand the basics of positioning the body in the correct way to be able to execute the steps. It is important that both student and parent understand it is extremely important for any dancer to include ballet in order to really see progression.
