Classical ballet classes are being offered at the Wellness Center, located at the Wyoming Middle School, 17 Wyoming Ave., Wyoming, OH 45215. Children ages 3 and up will learn basic classical ballet technique, while working on flexibility, strength, grace, and musicality. Most of all, the dancers will have fun while developing a love of dance.
Dena Morley, a former professional dancer with the Toledo Ballet Company, also teaches ballet at The Cincinnati Ballet Otto M. Budig Academy and Lads and Lassies Community Pre-School.
Ms. Dena, a certified (K-8) elementary teacher and reading specialist, hopes to build up her students’ self-confidence and technique through the beautiful art of ballet.
"I love teaching classical ballet to my students. I want to build their strength and ballet technique at the barre, but I also want to inspire them beyond the barre. I want to build their self-confidence, their poise and presence in front of an audience, and help them love to dance as much as I do."
