Our logo represents révérence*, one of ballet’s loveliest rituals. Sometimes simple, sometimes elaborately choreographed, révérence exemplifies ballet’s traditions of courtesy, dignity, elegance, and respect.
Most ballet classes end with révérence – bows and curtsies that acknowledge the teacher, the accompanist, and the importance of class itself. And at the end of a performance, dancers don’t just take a bow; they do a gracious révérence to express their appreciation for their partner, for their conductor, and for the applause of the audience.
*(The French pronounciation is ray-vayr-ahns, most Americans call it reh-ver-ahntz.)
