I think it's time I remind you again of the vital technical skills every dancer must have.

Sometimes, we all need a little help along the way. You may feel you are working your hardest in class, but you can always do more.

Listen carefully to the 9 skills necessary for every ballet dancer here -


Make sure you use every moment of your dance class to work hard, focus and give your fullest effort. That way, you will progress to reach the best dancer you can be.

Best wishes,


P.S - The quote of the day is: "It is not so much upon the number of exercises, as the care with which they are done, that progreses and skill depend." -Auguste Bournonville
