Introduction to Ballet
Natural movement potentials
Introduction to Ballet is a class for people beginning ballet or for dancers that are interested in revisiting the basic principles of what ballet has to offer: placement and alignment; the folding, articulation and rotation of the joints, coordination, and the natural push and pull movements we use in our everyday lives.
The class itself is set up as a normal ballet class: we will use the barre and work on the vocabulary in the centre. We will also start on the floor at times with a simple floor exercise to help find an understanding of the body before it comes to a standing position in order to assist all of the above. The idea is to use ballet as tool to enhance the awareness of a person’s own natural movement potentials and widening the perspectives about the body, while at the same time tasting the joy of Ballet.
