Class Description

Often performed barefoot, Modern, is now more than 100 years old. Although similar to ballet in many ways, it uses movements that are freer and a more natural form of expressive dance. Dancers will explore a dynamic range of movement qualities, varying rhythm and timing while making artistic choices in the development of performance quality.  Students will be encouraged to incorporate individual expression in their approach to movement theory and composition.  This is a great class for students age 10 and up.

Pointe
Class Description

Ballet Add-On Classesavailable for those wishing to advance/progress “en pointe” (in addition to their regular Ballet class).

—Pre-Pointe – Before beginning pointe work, a Ballet dancer must undertake many pre-pointe exercises to ensure they are strong enough to dance on pointe without injury.  Dancers must be at least 12 years of age and have completed extensive work in ballet to enroll in this class. (Must be currently enrolled in Ballet II or III).  

—Pointe – Pointe is ballet performed in pointe shoes.  Dancers must be at least 12 years of age and have completed extensive work in ballet and pre-pointe to enroll in this class. (Must be currently enrolled in Ballet II or Ballet III).  Students are admitted to go up on pointe when recommended by the pointe teacher.  Students are evaluated on coordination, posture, strength, and feet.  There is an inherent risk going up on pointe, therefore, we will only recommend those students who are developmentally ready to begin pointe work.
