Class Details

Designed for intermediate/advanced ballet dancers, this is primarily a studio course. Twice a week dancers will have a 75 minute ballet technique class composed of barre and center work (adage, pirouettes, petit allegro, grand allegro); pointe work and/or partnering will follow for a 1/2 hour, as applicable. The 3rd weekly class meeting will consist of a warm-up followed by rehearsal of a new ballet that will be created for the class. This new ballet will be performed in a formal setting later in the semester. The class may go on one or two field trips to attend performances and will write response papers when applicable.
