Ballet School

Ballet School

Ballet is one of the most demanding and awarding disciplines in the arts, ballet school is usually not a temporary course taken in a few years, but encompasses a ballet dancer’s existence from an early age until the dancer begins to work professionally with a company.

Even after the dancer achieves professional status, it is likely that he or she will return to ballet school at some point, and many retired dancers often teach in a ballet school. Therefore, the best dancers spend a good deal of time in ballet school.

Ballet requires the physical stamina of the most strenuous types of athletics, and the classes taken in ballet school focus on physical conditioning as well as areas of dance theory and technique. Classical ballet school begins for most dancers at an early age, and usually lasts a minimum of eight years.
