TEXAS METROPOLITAN BALLET's

PROGRAMS

Texas Metropolitan Ballet's academy studio of dance has a curriculum which has been carefully and thoughtfully gleaned from a heritage of some of the greatest teachers whose lineage can be traced to the finest masters of their time.  Using a blend of Vaganova, Bournonville, and French methods, TMB's students gain a balance in the flair of virtuoso technique and true expressive dancing.  Incorporating many combinations of weight changes in barre and center exercises, students strengthen their core balance and progress more quickly in their technical skills.  With a strong emphasis on performance quality throughout the classes, dancers break down the methods for many facets that take the dancer from the classroom to the stage. Through innovative teaching methods that give clear understanding of the technique, TMB brings a quality of freshness to the classes while preserving the essential elements of ballet.  Focusing on the individual dancer, Texas Metropolitan Ballet draws out the best methods for that student to work within the given movement, rather than sacrificing the student for the technique.
