Through barre exercises, students are encouraged to recognize their individual anatomy and learn how to practice ballet in a secure and effective way. Moving away from the barre fosters a relationship to direction and movement as well as an understanding of different movement qualities, such as fluidity, suspension, sharpness in turns, and lightness in small and big jumps. The class culminates with a performance showcasing a piece the students have been working on. A brief placement form will be sent after enrollment. 

Please note: Dance classes will be run based on student selection. Some classes with low enrollment may not be offered, but each student will be placed in one of their selected classes.
