Ballet Dance Classes in Hamilton


Ballet is a refined art danced by dedicated athletes. Over half a century old, ballet is defined through its poise, grace, power, control and speed. At Elev8 Dance, our Ballet classes are overseen by our studio director, Mr. Chris; a previous professional ballet dancer ranked 6th in the world. Mr. Chris makes our ballet classes fun and engaging.

Although graceful and remarkably beautiful on the surface, Ballet teaches our students to develop:

Pointed toes and stretched knees are where it all begins. The skills of a well-trained ballet dancer build an exceptional foundation to excel at all other styles of dance and transfer over to our everyday lives in all kinds of hidden ways.

Ballet is highly recommended for students interested in improving their skills and performance in Acrobatics, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary and Modern Dance. New students are welcome all year-round. Book Your Trial Class Today and check it out for yourself.
