Classical ballet is the most internationally recognized form of dance , and the foundation of all other types of dancing. The benefits of studying ballet are numerous - some of which are grace, poise, coordination, fluidity, strength and musicality. Only by studying ballet can the dancer gain total knowledge of his/her body, technical ability and strength.
