Ballet Combo Program Description

Ballet Combo program is a fusion of recreational rhythmic gymnastics, ballet and dance. Classes are longer than recreational rhythmic gymnastics classes and last for 1.5 hours. Besides gymnastics skills and apparatus, girls learn ballet and a variety of dance styles from all over the world. This is a great class to develop great posture, elegance, expression and grace, as well as overall agility and flexibility. Every student participates in at least to shows per year to demonstrate newly acquired skills to their parents, relatives and friends, and just to have fun performing with peers.
