Welcome to the Beaumont Tower Ballet Blog! I’ve developed this online resource to support and share information for my Ballet Basics and Intermediate Ballet students at Michigan State University, as well as anyone else interested in learning about ballet and other dance forms in a fun, body-positive way. In this blog, I will share tips about techniques, information about ballet styles and stories, and announcements for upcoming performances in Michigan.
