As a teaching artist with Velocity Dance Center, Kaitlin has specialized in working with beginning and intermediate adults since 2014, and prides herself on bringing safe practices, down-to-earth vibes, and the joy of dance to the classroom.
Zoom classes start up Jan 9!
For the duration of classes being online, both Modern and Ballet will activate the power of community co-raising. Our “reciprocity practice” will split proceeds 40/60 between Velocity Dance Center and a rotating charity-of-the-month.
Jan: Grandma’s House of Seattle
Feb: New Beginnings
Mar: Casa Latina
Classes are drop in, but you must register at least 10 minutes in advance through the Velocity website.
Reciprocity Practice: Good Morning Modern!
Saturdays 9am-10:15am PST, starting Jan 9th. No class Feb 27.
This beginning level modern class will get you up and moving in your living room. Warm up is a mix of easy-to-follow-along exercises to build heat, and technical combinations to get mind and body moving together. Class is rooted in classical modern technique with contemporary flair, building toward a new combination each week that gives students tools for learning choreography and inviting artistic expression. An enlivening start to your weekend!
Reciprocity Practice: Open-Level Ballet Barre
Sundays 2:30pm-4:00pm PST, starting Jan 10th. No class Feb 28.
Give your body and ballet practice a little extra love at the barre! This class will gradually build strength and speed in and upbeat, come-as-you-are environment, with plenty of rich plies and gooey tendus included. This back-to-basics class is appropriate for students with a solid grasp of foundational ballet steps, and adaptations suggested to suit the goals of more advanced students. Extended barre practice will culminate in a stretch sequence plus one or two floor exercises to integrate the day’s lesson. Keep tuned in to your body from home during these dark winter months!
My historical in-person class schedule (Beginning Modern on Saturday , Beginning Ballet on Sundays, and Low-Intermediate Ballet on Monday evenings) is currently on hold until pandemic conditions permit regular classes.
