Advanced/Pre-Advanced Technique
By placement only. Contact the studio for a placement class. In Advanced Ballet, the technique classes develop as each student matures and takes on professional approach towards the study of classical ballet. Barre and center exercises increase in both difficulty and artistry in order to challenge the students' increasing mental, expressive, and physical capabilities. A more mature sense of musicality and quality of movement is emphasized with a goal of continuing to develop suppleness and smooth graceful movements, coordination of the head, arms, legs, body, and the use of epaulement. The students will develop strong classical lines and solid anatomical placement, as well as virtuoso jumps and beats. In addition, this level emphasizes the development of the students' awareness of choreographic concepts, training dancers to be quick studies who can embrace any choreographic style. Advanced students also learn variations from the ballet repertoire. All Advanced dancers are encouraged to participate in The Nutcracker and the Spring Production as a performance supplement to their training. Ladies should wear a black leotard, pink tights, and pink ballet slippers with their hair neat and in a bun.
