    Class Description



    This class is designed for students who master most of the ballet vocabulary and wish to work on building strength, clarity and phrasing while maintaining correct classical technique. Emphasis is put on the full expression of the torso, in its changes of weight, levels and propulsion in space.

    Class begins at the barre and builds from simple exercises to the more complex. Center work includes colorful segments of movements with varied tempos and rhythms. "My goal is to teach an inspiring ballet class which allows one’s physicality and personality to shine through."
