Ballet - The Joy of Movement
Some "tricks of the trade"
This class is a classical ballet class but using the principals of describing space and sensing motion that I learned while improvising for Forsythe for many years. The class is body friendly and allows us to learn some "tricks of the trade" to make our lines more clear and long. We also will be approaching things with speed, deriving from my Balanchine training.
Like the title suggests I also look for ways that we can explore the joy of movement in a ballet class, incorporating the whole body and to be able to see that ballet is still dancing.
