Ballet (soft shoe) for beginners include learning positions, basic terminology, barre work, and center floor exercises. As a student advances they continue to learn more terminology and progress into harder exercises at the barre and in the center. Pointe work can begin at the again 14, if an instructor feels the student is ready. This style of dance is a great for beginners and it will help with balance, strength and discipline.
