Dance The Lake Forest Dance Academy is proud to celebrate 43 years of providing quality dance programs for all ages! We offer a variety of summer classes including Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, and Hip Hop. We offer challenging programs designed for the serious dance student. We also provide classes for children, teens, and adults who simply love to dance or just want to experience the rewards of this artistic discipline. Ballet BEGINNING BALLET (6Y+): Beginning Ballet covers the basic fundamentals of classical ballet and is a good beginning level for the 6-year-old and up. Balanced exercises at the barre and center are introduced to gain strength, good posture, placement, and discipline. Introduction to French terminology (ballet steps and their meanings), correct body alignment, and proper technique are emphasized as well as introduction to turns (spotting exercises) and free movements (leaps, skips, and jumps across the floor).
