- Starting with children at age 7, ballet training consists of the building blocks and language of ballet, along with the history.
- As children move up through the levels, they learn combinations of movements and whole dances, eventually culminating in performance.
- Training in ballet begins in soft ballet shoes, that fit like a glove. As the female dancer gets stronger, she may graduate to pointe shoes, or toe shoes, which have a hard "box" in the front of the shoe and a hard "shank" under the arch to support the dancer's weight up on her toes. Boys can train in pointe shoes as well, but it is not traditionally done. There are some professional companies, however, such as the "Trockaderos" which consist of men, some of whom dress in "drag" in women's costumes and dance on pointe.
This video is of Russian students practicing rond de jamb, one of the important foundations of Ballet.
This is an example of how we teach Ballet technique at Full Circle Studio.
