Welcome to Ballet School
Welcome to your first day at ballet school! Put on your ballet shoes and let's master your basics with author and New York City Ballet principal Ashley Bouder. Learn five basic lessons, then visit the costume room, before putting on your very own show of Sleeping Beauty at the end. There's no admissions policy to our Ballet School. Whether you are already learning ballet, or thinking about starting, this class is for you. Learn your plies, first positions, jetes, pirouettes, and grand battements. Then go on to learn the characters and interpretations of Sleeping Beauty--taught in an inclusive way so anyone can dance the parts they want to. A helpful glossary at the back provides a review of ballet terms.
