    Class Description:



    Bivi's class is taken from the European schools. Her class approach is pure and precise, with emphasis on correct placement of the body, instruction on the mechanics necessary for movements, and the importance of utilizing musical phrasing. Bivi uses these basic elements to assist each student in developing a solid foundation upon which to build his/her ballet technique.
