Everyone is included
At Barres we pride ourselves in including all dancers (new and experienced) in our classes. We welcome dancers from all backgrounds. And at Barres we aim to accommodate all our dancers and families to our best ability.
At Barres we focus on the execution of dance moves with precision and excellent technique. Technique is an essential part of dance, and important as it assists in the longevity of the dancer. The use of good dance technique helps to prevent injuries, build strength and flexibility, as well as refine movements. Good technique as well as correct stance and posture are essential to perfect turns, leaps, and jumps.
At Barres creativity is an essential component of all our classes. We encourage creative expression during class and our students are invited to take part in choreographic exploration.
At Barres professionalism and integrity are important to us. We aim to always be professional in all that we do — from our dancing performances to the way the studio is run.
