Four-Week Summer Intensive
7/10/2023 – 8/4/2023
With this class additional technique and ballet vocabulary are introduced. The student’s repertoire of movement, timing and complexity become more integrated. The performance and musical aspects of ballet are increasingly demanding.
This class is pivotal in the young dancer’s education. It is an exciting age to master more technically demanding aspects of ballet. Bodies are now neurologically capable of mastering more complex progressions of the ballet technique.
This class introduces dancers to performance skills and involve increasingly demanding levels of physical development and technique. The student’s repertoire of movement, timing and complexity become more integrated offering the potential to advance into solo performance and pointe work. Classes are focused on technique, pre-pointe, pointe work and solo performance with attention to mastering the essential connection of mind and body. Complementary exercises will increase flexibility, joint mobility and muscle strength to enable students to safely manage increasing physical demands on their body.
This technique is a phenomenal compliment to any ballet class you are currently taking. This class is laying the foundation for ballet technique with its terminology and positions. The fundamentals of posture, core development, flexibility and fluidity are reinforced as students progress through a full, classical ballet barre and gracefully move to the center floor to challenge their balance and coordination with center practice exercises. The class culminates with a series of more challenging petite enchainments to further stimulate strength, stamina, ease of movement, memory and confidence.
Silver Swans is designed by the Royal Academy of Dance to serve mature dancers where each will receive modifications in class according to their ability and physical limitations if necessary. For both novice and experienced dancers, these classes have no upper or lower age limit and no strict regime. This class delivers internal, emotional, and a physical workout where dancers sculpt their bodies, increase confidence, and physical stability and agility in a positive, like-minded atmosphere.
