This class is for students who have prior knowledge of the basic ballet positions of both feet and arms & can demonstrate plie, tendu and degage.
Attention is paid to the proper extension of the legs and shape of the feet, developing movement sequences, port de bras and balance as the student continues to grow. Students will see an increase in difficulty in barre and center work as they begin to focus on repetition and retention. Single pirouettes and grand allegro are also introduced. Body alignment and muscle awareness will determine progress. This class will focus on positions of the arms, direction of the body and increased movement vocabulary. The Lyrical component combines technique and skills from ballet and jazz. Students will also explore how lyrical dance emphasizes interpretation of music lyrics to tell a story with movement that can be fluid or abstract.
Students should have:
- Black leotard
- Pink tights
- Pink split sole Ballet shoes
- Hair pulled back off face
