Ballet Class Description
This is a ballet class designed for classical and contemporary trained dancers.
Particular attention is given to the relationship between musicality and coordination, as well as prioritizing functional movement and the anatomy of the body.
With passion and joy I encourage anyone to approach this class as a tool to gain strength and awareness while improving versatility in moving between different dance styles and movement languages.
