Description: This is a twice weekly class.
Ballet 3 can be used as an introductory level for those students 9-13 years who show the maturity to dive in and work hard. Students would be asked to take a placement class if they are new to dance and have not taken ballet in the past 2 years. Ballet 3 can also can be taken as a sequential class following Ballet 2. The concepts of locomotion, body awareness, pathways, dance vocabulary, sequencing, musicality, and a strong emphasis on anatomy, core strength and the use of proper alignment are strongly taught at this level. An 18 week curriculum is followed that bases each class on concepts of movement, space or the body and how it functions.
A twist on the traditional classical ballet class we will begin each class with a vigorous series of locomotor movements across the floor, for example: skips, gallops, chasses, and prances. Ballet 3 continues with a full barre, center work petite allegro and grand allegro exercises. It continues to dig deeper into the classical ballet vocabulary French vocabulary and the use of musical terms such as; Adagio, moderato, allegro, and presto. This is strictly a technique class. Students wishing to need to register for Rehearsal 3 which meets after class on Wednesdays. Those enrolled will have 2-3 dances in our Seasonal Concert. Contemporary /Modern 3 is highly recommended along with Rehearsal for this level.
Teaching philosophy: I have a very strong philosophy of respect in the classroom. student to teacher, teacher to student ,students to each other, the space and the learning environment. Every student is an individual that learns in a unique way. My job as a teacher is to choose the best language and examples to create a stimulating and playful learning environment. I choose to eliminate negative words in the classroom like” No”,” not” or” wrong.” I believe in transparency. I crave an authentic and healthy relationship with both my students and their families.
