 This class is offered in Intermediate and Advanced levels. This class will focus on building the strength and conditioning that dancers need to reach a higher level of ability. The focus will be on students weaker areas (turn-out, extension, abdominal strength etc.)

Variations

Intermediate: Friday 5:30pm - 6:30pm

Advanced: Thursday 6:30pm - 7:30pm 

Your child will learn a variation from a well-known ballet, the story and history of the ballet, along with viewing famous dancers that have danced the role. Students will learn a new variation each month performing at the end of the month for parents and other students wishing to come and view. This is great for both students participating as they improve upon their skills of dancing in front of an audience, and for younger students in the studio to come learn about their art form. (Minimum of 3 technique classes per week to take this class).
