LEVEL 1 Students progress through a designed curriculum that provides comprehensive dance training. In the Primary Ballet Division, great emphasis is placed on proper posture and body alignment, as well as developing the core strength needed for correct and safe training. Level 1 students work carefully, with a lot of repetition, in order to isolate the correct muscle groups for each exercise. Performance is also an integral part of the training for all Primary Division students DRESS CODE Level 1 Girls: Motionwear #2603 V-Strap leotard in Iris (color # 498).
