While we know it’s irresistibly cute to watch your daughter tip-toe around in her little pink tutu, ballet actually has many benefits to offer, such as poise, posture and confidence. In fact, classical ballet is the foundation of all dance genres. This is where proper posture, placement and control are developed.

Here are the many ballet classes available for kids in Singapore.
