Ballet classes presuppose a beginning knowledge of the technique. They foster strength, balance, and dexterity. At the barre, traditional exercises condition and prepare the musculature to anticipate the execution of virtually all movements of the classical vocabulary. The nature of the exercises allows students to widen their personal range of motion. The concepts learned at the barre are tested in the center through the adagio (lyrical quality, balance), and allegro (small and big jumps) components of the lesson. The knowledge and dexterity acquired in Ballet C are applied to more challenging usage of the exercises and center floor combinations for levels B and A.
