Why Is Ballet So Important?
Mr. Parker strongly believes that ballet is the foundation of all forms of dance. He is extremely passionate about teaching not only the correct technique to young dancers, but a respect for the art of ballet. Mr. Parker’s classes are tough but fair and he expects a high level of respect, dedication and discipline in his classes.
Ballet is an art form that is losing its original integrity as the years pass. I believe it is my responsibility as an instructor, to teach ballet to my students with the intention that it was taught to me when I was a student. This high level of discipline and knowledge will carry through with them to anything they decide to do in life. These are not only lessons that are applicable in the ballet studio, these are life lessons. – Seth Parker, Director of Ballet
