Advanced Ballet Technique and Performance Spring 2023 (also offered Fall 2022)
Division I

Class Details

Designed for advanced ballet dancers looking for a vigorous dance experience in which technique classes, rehearsals, and performances are approached with focus and commitment, and in which these integral processes are conducted with creativity, curiosity, and joy. This is entirely 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); rehearsal, pointe work and/or partnering may be incorporated into some classes or may follow in the 1/2 hour after technique class as applicable. (Please note that pointe work is entirely optional, only for those who desire to continue that aspect of their ballet training.) 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; material will also be reviewed earlier in the week after technique class. This new ballet will be performed in a formal setting later in the semester, to be determined based on performance scheduling. This course MAY BE REPEATED for general academic credit. ANY student with adequate prior training is welcome to this class! Material will be introduced at an intermediate/advanced level, and individuals will be assessed on their own personal progress. (Students with a full academic course schedule may also take this class for partial academic* or PE credit. *Partial academic credit does not go toward the number of credits required to graduate, but will appear on one’s final transcript.)
The Class: Format: studio; The final for this course will consist of at least two performances, outside the informal studio setting, of the original ballet the students will be learning.
