Tips for How to Be a Ballerina
So You Want to Be a Ballerina! Ballet is an amazing dance form. Studying ballet gives one confidence, strength and grace. Little budding ballerinas under age 6 start with creative movement classes where they can dress up in tutus and move expressively to music. Starting at age 6, children will benefit from a more structured beginner ballet class. As students become even more serious they can try out to study with a ballet school affiliated with a ballet company. With hard work and a passion for dance, you can be a ballerina too!
