DANC 304
Ballet III Technique for Intermediate/Advanced Dancers Spring 2021 (also offered Fall 2020)

Class Details

Designed for dancers who have achieved intermediate/advanced level of ballet technique, and who are interested in working with spirit, perseverance, and joy. Everyone at the appropriate level is welcome! Class includes barre work, center and traveling exercises that incorporate adage, pirouettes, petit and grand allegro*. Proper alignment and rigorous but safe application of technique are expected. (Additional pointe work available if applicable and requested.) Students are encouraged to work safely and correctly within their individual abilities so that artistry, musicality and the dynamics in ballet are explored. The classes have live piano accompaniment. In Fall 2020, classes will be offered each week in the following formats: in-studio for on-campus students; live-streaming for off-campus students in a similar time zone; pre-recorded films for off-campus students unable to realistically engage in the “live” session blocks. If the number of on-campus students exceeds the studio space limit for this year, we will follow an alternating studio/livestream schedule. Classes will be designed with the knowledge that many spaces will be restrictive. Elements such as floor barre will be given as training supplements for students working in very small spaces. *In Fall 2020, traveling exercises such as traditional grand allegro will be greatly reduced/deconstructed.
The Class: Format: studio; This class can be repeated and meets for the full semester, twice per week. In Fall 2020, the following formats are available: in-studio for on-campus students; live-streaming for off-campus students in a similar time zone; pre-recorded films for off-campus students unable to realistically engage in the "live" session blocks. If the number of on-campus students exceeds the studio space limit for this year, we will follow an alternating studio/livestream schedule.
