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!

Good Morning Modern! 
CURRENTLY ON HOLD. HOPING TO RESUME FALL 2022.

Work your brain, body, and artistic spirit! An organic, easy-to-follow warm up integrates strength-building, healthy alignment, and dance concepts that will help students move with freedom both on the dance floor and in everyday life. This class focuses on applying concepts of weight, energy, rhythm, and momentum to choreographic phrases. A new combination is taught each week and students are given tools for learning choreography and inviting artistic expression. Through use of images and sequence, YOU can learn fun and dynamic choreography, even as a beginner! This class fuses a broad and eclectic mix of techniques that will prepare students to springboard into any dance form that peaks their interest.
