Ballet is the foundation from which nearly all dance styles have developed. It requires strong technique, athleticism, and grace.
Ballet choreography is based on combinations of fundamental movements. Some movements, are training exercises designed to give strength and flexibility to the entire body while helping the dancer acquire perfect posture, or “placement,” with the weight lightly balanced over the centre of gravity.
Hetta Studio of Dance & Music incorporates The Royal Academy of Dance(RAD) syllabus in their classes. RAD offers an internationally recognised portfolio of examinations and assessments designed to encourage, motivate and reward students of all ages and abilities, outlining a progressive structure for learning and achievement in dance.
