Ballet Tech 

10 y.o. - adult students. This (non-performing) class is strictly a technique class that is beneficial for all ages!

Don't worry if you are not wanting to become a professional dancer taking this class will teach lifelong necessary skills like stretching, good posture, how to strengthen your core, and flexibility as well as being the BEST ballet class you have ever taken! This class was created by "T" Marie Mast's mentor Maxine Williamson and her mentor Lillian Cushing who both were professional ballerinas with exemplary reputations in the ballet world, in their day. Maxine collaborated with M.D. specialists: an orthopedist, rheumatologist and including renowned Dr. Harold Magoun Jr. D.O., F.A.A.O., F.C.A., Ed. (Hon). to add the "floor barre" portion of the ballet tech class. Making certain this is the best and safest training for students of all ages!
