All students at Vogler Dance Studios study ballet
in their weekly dance class from three year old students to
seventeen year old students. Ballet is the language of dance.
All theatrical dance is either built on or derived
from ballet. In the ballet portion of dance class the student
learns the basics of dance. Here is where we study posture,
balance, jumps, turns, extension, and expression. These are
elements that will be used in all the other classes such as
baton twirling, gymnastics, jazz and tap dancing.
Students who enjoy ballet and wish to learn more
including pointe come to a second class meeting during the week
I call EXTRA BALLET. This class is fun to teach because the
students have mastered their basics and are motivated to go
on to more intense demanding training that regular students
do not have the discipline for. Pointe class (toe dancing) requires
practice and diligence but the reward is a beautiful performance.
EXTRA BALLET students sometimes transfer to the NC School of
the Arts and pursue full-time training. Dancers who began with
Vogler Dance Studios when they were three year old girls now
perform on stage as adults.
