Ballet: Beginning Ages 8-12
Dancers who take this class will already have knowledge of positions, as well as an ability to demonstrate appropriate dance etiquette. They are beginning to work on posture and alignment, are aware of turning out from the hips and can demonstrate their understanding of all vocabulary learned in the 5-7 year levels. They will do a full barre with memorization, begin to focus on head direction and increasing body awareness. Students will focus on strengthening exercises, furthering of technique and demonstrating proper posture and alignment.
