Core Allegro School of Ballet & Contemporary Dance was founded in 2017 by Olga Roberts. The school focuses on two critical aspects surrounding young dancers. Learning proper dance technique through careful, knowledgeable teaching methods and proper body conditioning using advanced pilates training techniques. It is only when young dancers incorporate both Ballet and Pilates advanced training techniques will they realize their true potential and drastically improve injury prevention. Core Allegro School of Ballet & Contemporary Dance goal is to instill the love of dance in every student and to teach them how to protect themselves from the always present risk of injury throughout their dance training. Each student will be encouraged to fully express themselves and to learn all the different dance styles we offer. We realize each student progresses at their own pace and will never be pressured to do more than just try their best. We know that all students have the potential to learn and benefit from the world of dance.
Each of our Teachers was carefully chosen to become part of our faculty base on their love of dance, love of children, and those who have demonstrated creativity in their teaching styles.
