This class consists of beginner to intermediate ballet barre work, adage & allegro, center floor exercises, turns & leaps and choreographed combinations. Emphasis will be placed on developing suppleness, strength, and artistry. This class is designed for beginner to intermediate level students ages 10 years and above. The coordination of arms and head are developed with a concentration on smooth transitions throughout the exercises.
Students in Cecchetti Grade II will no longer be required to take an additional ballet class. Cecchetti Grade II & Ballet C will be combined. This will give the students the opportunity to focus on Cecchetti technique in addition to new choreography. They will develop proper placement of torso, hips and legs without exceeding anatomical limitations. The coordination of arms and head are developed with a concentration on smooth transitions throughout the exercises. Students will also learn how to combine artistry with their movement through the addition of ballet choreography combinations. *Grade II students will participate in the dance recital.
