Ballet Technique

  /  Ballet Technique

Ballet Technique

Taught by Kara Komarnitsky

This class explores and develops the principles of ballet technique in a creative setting. Dancers learn a wide range of barre and center combinations to refine their awareness, presence, and expression throughout their whole being. This class is very structured and slowly progresses from beginning-level through more advanced movements to ensure proper alignment and understanding of the technique. The mechanics of ballet are approached through an anatomical lens to ensure safety and embrace a balletic expression that fits each dancer’s unique body. Conditioning and stretching are a vital part of this class to build mobility and support more demanding technical movements. Musicality is heavily emphasized as we discover the nuance of waltz steps, leaps, quick jumps, and turns. Qualities such as suspension, floatation, and expansion are applied to every exercise to help dancers find the beauty and fluidity within the technique. Dancers are encouraged to be curious about the technique and connect what they learn within the ballet aesthetic to all aspects of their creative lives.

Dancers are not required to wear a leotard or tights to class. Ballet shoes or socks are encouraged but not required.

Tuition $85 charged monthly

6th Grade and Above

Use the table below to access the online registration form.  Once you fill the form out, select your classes, and input your information the enrollment will be sent to the studio. If you have issues or questions regarding this process, please get a hold of the studio

Absolutely!  We’d love to offer you a FREE trial class to come and experience, first hand, the magic of what we do at South Valley Creative Dance Studio.

Please use the table below and select “TRIAL” enrollment on the form.  This will let the studio know that you are interested in learning more but not enrolling for the full semester/year just yet.  If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to the studio.

Monthly tuition rates are found in the class table below. In addition to tuition, we ask all families to pay a one-time $60 costume and production fee per student in the spring. This covers the cost of costuming ($30) and producing ($30) our show. Using the costume fee, the studio will purchase a leotard that your dancer will wear for the performance AND that you can keep afterwards.  Using the production fee, the studio will pay for a videographer to shoot and record the show and will provide a digital download to you.

We highly suggest that you enroll for the entire year. Our Fall semester is spent in the studio dancing and building skills, while our Spring semester is used to choreograph and prep for an end-of-year recital. We don’t want anyone to miss out on enjoying and being a part of our amazing production.

If you can only enroll for part of the year, we recommend dropping from classes at the Winter/Holiday break.  Please see below for more information about our withdrawal policy.

Every effort is made to make sure you love your dance class and want to keep coming – not only all year but for years to come!  If you have issues with the studio or teacher, please feel free to bring them to the attention of the studio owner – we will make every effort to make a place for you at this studio.

If, however, you must leave classes we require a 30-day written (email is fine) notice of your withdrawal, after which time no more tuition will be due.  This policy is strictly followed and will be enforced – it’s also a part of the legalese when you register – so you’ll see it again as a reminder!
