Ballet for Contemporary Dancers

easier, more joyful, and more human

The ballet class re-evaluates and builds on classical technique, focusing on strengthening the dancer’s awareness of his or her own natural alignment. The class is divided into two parts: the barre and the centre. Exercises at the barre emphasise on isolating and releasing the joints in order to strengthen the dancer's centre and support proper body placement. Body placement becomes functional and fluid, rather than stiff and held, making movement easier and more natural. The second half of the ballet class, conducted in the centre, continually challenges the dancer to use the placement and release discovered at the barre as a source of strength and individual dynamics. Training in the centre relies on shift of weight, motivation and flow of movement and momentum rather than on form to allow the dancer to move with a greater sense of freedom and expression. The dancer then gains a stronger sense of confidence to take space and go beyond technique.
