Dancing at Patterson School of Ballet is both challenging and rewarding. Mr. Michael draws on his professional experience to teach us classical ballet. In class, we learn proper ballet techniques. We do barre stretching, exercises and group exercises. I am also learning partnering. This past summer, I earned my pointe shoes! It was a very special and memorable day! I’m working very hard in class. Mr. Michael is very serious but also very funny and makes class exciting. We have a lot of performance opportunities throughout the Erie area and we get to wear beautiful costumes. Ballet isn’t just for girls. My brother also takes classes. I wish other boys would give it a try. It’s a great form of exercise and you’ll be sure to love it!! Classes are open for ages three and older. I hope you will come and join us.
