Traditional and not-so-traditional ballet exercises combine for a thoughtful, anatomically-aware workout while increasing grace, coordination, posture, and strength. Working through imagery and sensation, the class will help students develop a solid foundation in basic ballet steps as well as working with musicality and developing skills for learning choreography. The fun, supportive environment is perfect for the beginning dancer looking to tackle new steps, or more experienced dancers wanting to hone their technique. This class celebrates ballet’s rich theatrical history with choreography that encourages a broad range of dramatic expression and unbridled, joyous dancing!

This introductory class will guide a group of students through the basic building blocks of movement using a contemporary dance approach. Integrating strength-building and healthy alignment, we’ll learn dance concepts that will help students move with freedom both on the dance floor and in everyday life. Through use of images we will activate our imaginations and expressive capacity, building to a fun and dynamic choreographic sequence. This class fuses a broad and eclectic mix of techniques that will prepare students to springboard into any beginning dance class. Work your brain, body, and artistic spirit!

Accessibility:

This class is most suitable for folks who can balance on one leg for 5 seconds, and who can be on “all fours” for a short time without discomfort.
