"Dance is the hidden language of the soul"
Ballet technique is the core of all dance and therefore a part of many classes. It teaches balance, posture, control, strength, flexibility and much more. When you begin learning the steps and poses of ballet, you will realize that most of them have French names. King Louis XIV of France started the first ballet school, the Royal Academy of Dance, in 1661. Most of the French terms have been carried throughout the years.
