Ballet

We are proud to hold a comprehensive, challenging curriculum under TADA ballet director Elise Elliott, soloist for the Houston Ballet.  Ballet is the foundation of almost all dance forms, and is firmly rooted in tradition.  Ballet at TADA should be taken in conjunction with other classes, as it translates across genres in the essential elements, such as alignment, turnout, balance, flexibility, and strength.  We offer combination classes and pre-ballet all the way up through advanced pointe and adult classes.  Ballet students who are at least the age of 6 are welcome to audition and participate in our annual production of the classic ballet,The Nutcrackerand the more serious ballet student level 4 or higher is welcome to audition for our pre-professional TADA Ballet Youth Company.  Ballet students begin by learning ballet positions, movement, vocabulary, and barre work through a series of repetitive exercises.  By the time students have reached a level 3 or 4, and depending on ankle/foot development and turnout, they may advance to center work and may begin pre-pointe work with approval from the instructor.  The higher levels of ballet work at the center, learning variations and adagio as they develop their artistry.
