To ensure proper technique and strength necessary to all styles of dance, dancers who are 8 and younger are required to take ballet along with any other dance styles they choose with the exception of Hip Hop. We have now dropped our ballet requirement for students under the age of 9 for Hip Hop classes only since hip hop really doesn't benefit from ballet training like other styles.
