Check out an enlightening interview with Breton by Certificate Program Student, Tina Wang, on our blog here!
Ballet with Breton begins with a logical and steady
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.
