Technique is taught with a contemporary flair.  The emphasis is on creative phrasing, while increasing strength and technical ability.  Objectives include moving through the five positions which wire the ballet system of movement.  This class begins with activities to help prepare for learning and improves social and behavioral skills through the teaching of ballet classroom etiquette.  The aim is to boost brainpower through exercise, increasing blood flow and oxygen to the brain through dancing, so the students can be challenged both mentally and physically.  Getting started at the barre is a critical element to this class and emphasis is placed on plies and tendu and degage exercises from first position. Activities center floor focus on breathing, being a visual versus a tactile dancer (dancing with and without the mirror), and working both the core and the distal lines of the limbs.
