Progressing Ballet Technique-All Levels
Wednesdays: 6:00 PM
Equipment: fit ball (yoga or Pilates ball), yoga mat (optional), a wall
This challenging class is based off of the innovative program called Progressing Ballet Technique which consists of floor conditioning exercises to improve coordination and muscle memory directly related to ballet, and contemporary dance movements. There is a large focus on core strength, weight placement and alignment which is beneficial to dancers and non-dancers alike. With the use of the fit ball, students are able to quickly feel where they are imbalanced and will feel improvements very quickly. A few repetitions go a long way in this class when executed correctly and efficiently.
Ballet Barre- Advanced Beginner

Equipment: chair/counter, yoga mat (optional)

Class consists of a cardio warm up, ballet barre, a short centre combination, and a cool down stretch.
