BALLET

Beginning

This class explores the basic positions and structure of a ballet class. Students begin at the barre and move to center work that includes stretches and rhythmic exercises that dance across the floor. The perfect introduction to the beginning dancer. No previous experience necessary.

Beginning/Intermediate

Beginning/Intermediate Ballet continues to build on the basic progression of a ballet class. Students work at the barre and move to more complex center exercises and movement sequences across the floor. This class will combine ballet vocabulary, rhythmic exercises, and stretches in a progressive class at a instructed pace for students to gain strength, increase flexibility, and greater body control.

Intermediate/Advanced

For the experienced dancer and/or professional that is familiar with the progression and structure of a ballet class. This class moves quickly through the barre, center work (adagio and pirouettes), and jumps (petit allegro and grande allegro).

Pointe/Variations

For the adult dancer that is looking for a comprehensive pointe class to continue building strength in pointe work. Pointe class is designed to be taken after technique class. The primary focus is pointe technique and building endurance in the shoes. Variations from the classical ballet repertoire are introduced once strength, endurance, and body control are achieved.

MODERN

Beginning/Intermediate

Beginning/Intermediate Modern continues to build on the basic progression of a modern class. Students work on the floor and move to more complex exercises and movement sequences across the floor. This class will combine modern vocabulary, rhythmic exercises, and stretches in a progressive class at a instructed pace for students to gain strength, increase flexibility, and greater body control.
