Starz Unlimited offers ballet classes for students of all ages. In our pre-ballet and beginner ballet classes our primary goal is to instill a love of the magical world of dance in our students and help them capture their natural enthusiasm for movement and music, while learning the basic ballet positions.
As the students grow and mature they transition into the more serious study of proper technique and also further their poise, discipline, confidence and artistic development as dancers. Dancers who wish to further their ballet experience may also attend pointe class, with instructor approval.
