Adult Beginner Ballet


This class is designed for adults of all ages who have had some previous instruction in ballet, or for those who may have danced in the past and are interested in starting to dance again after
some time away. Students will move through traditional barre and center exercises, practicing various positions of the head, arms, and lower body, and working on jumps, turns, and a gradually expanding repertoire of more complex
steps in the center. An emphasis will be placed on learning safe and correct posture and alignment, internalizing corrections, and using ballet as a means to challenge yourself while moving your body in a fun and supportive environment.

Ballet Intensive
This week-long intensive gives dancers the chance to focus in on their technique and performance skills in a supportive and energetic environment. Dancers will begin each day with a two-hour technique class to hone their skills and develop their strength and stamina, followed by an hour of pointe technique. Following a lunch break, the day will continue with either a stretch & conditioning class to help dancers develop the knowledge to build the flexibility and strength that ballet requires (on Tuesday and Thursday), or a music for dancers class to help dancers develop their knowledge and comprehension of the standard ballet scores (on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). The day will conclude with repertoire, and dancers will present what they have learned in an in-studio showing at the end of the week.

Young Performers Workshop
Dancers will refine their ballet technique and learn how to apply it in performance. Each day will begin with a 90-minute technique class to develop strength, skill, and coordination in classical ballet technique. Following that class will be either a stretch & conditioning class to give dancers the tools to develop the strength and flexibility that ballet requires (on Tuesday and Thursday), or a music for dancers class to develop their sense of rhythm, melody, and harmony so that they can hear and interpret the music they dance to (on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). Finally, the day will conclude with repertoire, and dancers will present what they have learned in an in-studio showing at the end of the week.
