Class Descriptions

Modern/Contemporary

This class will focus on the core concepts of space, time and energy as well as the qualitative approach to movement. Each class will integrate a wide range of modern techniques exploring concepts of weight, quality, effort, spatial/physical awareness and clarity in movement.

Pilates & Stretching

The Pilates technique focuses on centering, control, concentration, flow, breath and precision. This training decreases chronic pain and increases range of motion. This technique is very beneficial to dancers as supplemental training.  Posture will improve, abdominal, back and buttocks will strengthen and become more visibly toned, while arms and legs will become leaner. The class will conclude in stretches to lengthen the muscles.

Ballet

This class will consist of classical and contemporary ballet techniques. While focusing on working from an anatomical approach, this class class with emphasize creating honest and sound movement, correct placement of bones, and allowing muscles to function effortlessly and efficiently. Dancers are encouraged to take artistic risk, think independently and to explore their qualitative approach to movement. The ballet curriculum will include Vaganova, Cecchetti and Balanchine techniques.
