Learn the basics of ballet while building grace, poise, flexibility and strength. Experience the classical style without the intimidation or stress often associated with Ballet. We will take plenty of time to explain the language of ballet and address questions. A class that is “user-friendly” and paced to bring ballet “to the people”.
Build flexibility, maintain muscle tone and enhance technique with the intent to “let loose” with juicy center exercises. Emphasis placed on developing a wide range of classical steps. Each class provides full workout at barre, adage, pirouettes, moving turns, petit allegro, and grand allegro. Learn choreography intended to challenge technique and nurture the foundation which ballet provides for the committed dancer.
Experience the power of rhythm & sensuality in this foot stomping, hand clapping expressive dance form from Southern Spain. You will learn the basics of rhythm while exploring foot patterns, classic arm & hand movements, and the fundamentals of feet and hand percussion. If you love rhythm and crave a potent, proud form of expression this class is for you.
Classes explore both traditional and contemporary Flamenco dance. Braceo (arms), florea (hands), torso, cadera (hips), turns (vueltas) and percussive elements (feet, palmas, body percussion, pitos). Musical interpretation, a diversity of palos (song styles) explored. Amp up the speed and complexity as you integrate the upper and lower body into a tornado of powerful rhythm and sensuality.
