    Class Description



    I use a contemporary approach when teaching the principles of ballet, making them applicable and accessible to all dance styles. This class will focus on strengthening body placement and alignment as well as to investigate weight transfer, musicality, and how to maximize flexibility and rotation. We will use choreographic elements that challenge the dancers, and allow them to explore personal expression.
    Always a lively, inspiring, motivating atmosphere!

    Training with Ballet Gliders
    The Ballet Gliders are a very essential part of my class technique. At the barre, the use of the glider develops awareness of using both sides of the torso and arms. The fleece sleeve encourages the dancer to hold on the barre lightly, allowing for the slight changes of weight both forward/back and side/side. Less gripping and reliance on the barre results in more stability and balance for centerwork. The ballet glider is also a very comfortable cushion for the ankle when stretching at the barre.
