Ballet: Refining Your Technique

After a warmup focused on alignment, core strength and breath, we will examine some common ballet steps in-depth, with additional work on focus and direction. We will then move on to short phrases, applying the techniques we've reviewed, linking steps together, and relating to the rhythm of the music. This workshop is intended both for advanced beginning dancers looking to improve or explore intermediate-level work and for intermediate/advanced dancers looking to review and sharpen their skills. The workshop will be ballet specific, but the tools may be applied to other forms of dance.
