Ballet is the foundation of all genres of dance. At Allegro Dance, we believe quality ballet training makes every type of dancer stronger. The American Ballet Theatre method of ballet is taught in all of our classes. This ballet technique combines artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. ABT's method embraces sound principles and incorporates elements of the French, Italian and Russian schools of training. All of our ballet classes are taught by director Jenn Montie. Jenn's background in STOTT Pilates and her certification in levels pre-primary-level 3 of the American Ballet Theatre method make her classes safe and technical.
Ballet training at Allegro Dance starts at the age of 4. Dancers are invited to begin pointe work once the dancer is at least 10 years of age, technically sound, and strong enough to support herself.
