Ballet Sampler & Placement Class (ages 8+)
Free class sampler and placement class for Fall 2019 Ballet! Ballet is graceful lines, thoughtful movement, and live piano accompaniment in classes. In classical ballet classes, students build on the foundation they've established in pre-ballet. They have better command of their turn-out, allowing their body to work comfortably and properly in 3rd, 4th, & 5th positions of the feet. This also enables them to develop greater flexibility and tackle more intricate steps like rond de jambe, country pas de basque, and pas de chat. They begin to incorporate epaulement, or the positioning of the upper body in addition to the positioning of the hips, legs, and feet, and gain a real understanding of the lines that define the art form.

Theater Jazz Sampler (ages 7.5-11)
Free class sampler and placement class for Fall 2019 Theater Jazz! Theater Dance is the study of music through movement. In theater, dancers must have full command of jazz, ballet, and modern techniques in order to achieve the sophisticated styling required to portray any given character. Theater Dance at ALDEN MOVES gives students the opportunity to build on their fundamentals in an arena outside of a classical ballet class.

Students in Theater Dance should be enrolled in 1-2 classes per week.
