    Class Description

    Ballet with Breton begins with a logical and steady progression through barre, emphasizing the expansion of all mind/body systems. In the center dancers are encouraged to express their individuality exploring themes of power, fluidity, and definitive musical choices. Center combinations supply challenging and intricate choreography, with an overall emphasis on energy efficiency and flow. I continue to incorporate the "why" as well as the "how" of classical ballet. It is my great pleasure to share my love of dance, welcoming dancers of all ages and varying levels. Enjoyment of movement and flight are highly encouraged.
