The Ballet Centre in Murray
"We build quality dancers"


Our emphasis centers on the development of the child.
Proper technique is important in the development of any dancer. With our adaptation of the Russian Method of ballet, we at the Centre have gained an extended appreciation of the part physics play in proper balance of the body. This understanding, imparted to our students from their earliest experiences at the Centre, enables them to perform exquisitely the dramatic jumps, turns and rapid changes in the body position required.
All classes are accompanied by a pianist. Costumes are provided for all performances at no cost to the parents.
- We emphasize discipline but always employed with love. -
