Students will participate in developmentally appropriate activities that facilitate the acquisition of dance skills at a later age.

Chassé

Passé

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.

Changement

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.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 9:00am-12:00pm

Adult Ballet

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.
