    Class Description:

    Kathy uses 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. A major aspect of her teaching at the barre is to encourage students to hold the barre as lightly as possible and to allow the natural movements of forward and back that occur at the barre. She finds that using a Ballet Glider is a great reminder to do this, which results in stronger, more stable center work. The class will use choreographic elements that challenge the dancers, and allow them to explore personal expression. Always a lively, inspiring, motivating atmosphere! Kathy teaches an Open Level ballet class, all levels from 1 year of experience or more are welcome! Dancers can modify the given class exercises if injured or are beginner level. Kathy encourages more experienced dancers to embellish (within reason), the given material at the barre and center. This creates a positive and respectful learning atmosphere for all!
