Class Descriptions

Basic Ballet

"The foundation for all dance forms." This class is designed for the beginner student who wishes to learn and work slowly on the fundamentals of Classical Ballet. Vocabulary will be broken down and emphasis will be placed on understanding proper placement, coordination, musicality and the joy of moving the body in space. 
Please wear proper attire.

 

Beginner Ballet

This class is designed for the beginner who has the basic knowledge of Ballet and the ability to do a full and simple barre. Class begins at the barre, covering all the fundamental exercises. From the barre the class moves to the center, where the movement phrases are aimed to develop balance and coordination...students experience the JOY of MOVEMENT through space. Class is suited for students who come from diverse and non-dance backgrounds.

 

Adv Beg Ballet

Dorit's class is designed for students who already understand and are able to execute the vocabulary of ballet. Emphasis is placed on proper alignment, correct direction of all movements, and mostly on musicality, phrasing and transitions (connecting one movement to another). This class is not exclusive to ballet dancers; it benefits students who come from diversified dance backgrounds.
