BALLET w/Alejandra Devlin
Children's Ballet Program: Our ballet program is about building your child's love of dance in a fun, creative, imaginative and nurturing environment. We explore valuable artistry, musicality and improvisational skills while teaching the basic elements of correct ballet, proper alignment and technique in ways that make ballet fun and relatable to your child. Wonderful music, scarf play and many creative props are used to explore creative movement. Children learn the discipline of ballet with a fun element, are introduced to the "ballet barre", learn ballet vocabulary, jumps, movement across the floor and short choreographies.
Pre-Teen/Teen/Adult Program: Beginner & Intermediate Levels.
Ballet is a classic and beautiful art form and is a great foundation for any age. We welcome all levels of dancers and even first-time dancers. The ballet barre emphasizes correct ballet alignment and placement. Students work towards increasing strength, stretch, flexibility, stamina, expression, grace, musicality and improving their overall ballet technique. Center work covers combinations and movement across the floor. Ballet is one of the best activities and disciplines to improve balance and well-being. It provides a great feeling of fullness, freshness, and lightness in the body. As your technique improves, so will your posture, physical form and confidence! Ballet is a challenge and with day to day practice you will see constant improvement.
