    Class Description



    My ballet class provides training in classical ballet technique and incorporates elements of the American, French, and Russian schools. Emphasis is placed on coordination of the upper and lower body as the basis for holistic and connected movement. From the beginning of the barre, rhythm and alignment create the base for healthy and efficient center work. Placement of the spine and pelvis facilitates functional rotation from the hips. Clarity, speed, and articulation of footwork are of key importance. Dancers are challenged to make interpretive choices regarding musicality, phrasing, and focus.
