PAS DE DEUX

Champaign Ballet Academy students gain confidence and skill through the study of partnering, or "Pas de Deux," incorporated into the daily classes. Younger boys and girls become comfortable dancing together through character dances and simple steps, while older dancers learn entire classical pas de deux in preparation for performance. Through this pas de deux work, boys and girls learn to relate to one another in a positive manner, and performing together builds trust, respect, and support.
