From grand plié to grand jeté, Introduction to Ballet is for students with a curiosity for the study of classical ballet.
Designed for people with little or no previous training in dance, the class will be a mixture of movement techniques, improvisation, choreography, observing, writing and discussing.
This studio course will have us travel from temples and courtyards to clubs, streets, and stages around the world to better understand the diversity of dance.
Dance technique and choreography for beginning and intermediate levels.
Intermediate dance technique and choreography, with a focus on contemporary practices. In technique, students will be challenged to increase their body's strength, coordination and alignment, and to develop awareness and range of motion in multiple spatial planes.
Students are exposed to distinct choreographers by learning and performing repertory and creating choreography. The Technique and Repertory sections of the course develop technical expertise, expressive range, and stylistic clarity. Students will dance with attention to alignment, detail, spatial clarity, and an awareness of other dancers.
Advanced students will learn and perform dances that represent diverse approaches to contemporary choreography. Technique and Repertory classes encourage rich, subtle and stylistically accurate renditions of choreography and cultivate intelligent and imaginative artistic interpretations.
