#BAYERBALLETVIRTUALTRAINING

Teachers build upon the current curriculum to make sure that each student: * continues to develop properly, in a systematic, healthful way; * receives personalized, oral critiques, as we do in-studio; * receives proper guidance to continue working independently between classes; * develops a greater understanding of the Vaganova method and the art of classical ballet  will rise, stronger than before! We are committed to our students' well-being, as artists and people. Together, but virtual, we look forward to dancing through this journey with you! Coming together, while staying apart. The irony of this statement forces us to reflect on what’s uniting us right now: Always with us, wherever we go, dance is there. It’s a loyal gift. Together, we will rise stronger than before.
