Absolute Beginner Ballet Barre Mini-Intensive #2
October 24 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
1 Space Remaining
We are proud to announce our second Mini-Intensive for Absolute Beginner Ballet students.
Please fill out the form below to apply for this Mini-Intensive. Finis will review your request and, if approved, send you a registration link.
WHAT IS IT?
In this hour-long intensive, we will dissect and perfect the most commonly used traveling step which leads into poses, turns, and jumps: the pas de bourrée dessous de côté (quick steps on the half-toe traveling sideways). Besides facing the audience, this step will also begin facing one corner and end facing the other corner. Learning to properly execute this step – at first slowly, and then faster –will improve your positioning, balance, coordination, movement skills, strength, and musicality.
WHO IS IT FOR?
This intensive is designed for those who are progressing and want to delve into and master more advanced techniques. This Mini-Intensive class size is limited to only ten students so that Finis can see each one of you in every exercise and coach and correct you. You should already be warmed up, either from the preceding class or on your own. You must have enough space in your home so that Finis can see your entire body from head to toe with both arms extended. You must have enough clear space to move six feet in either direction. You should be dancing on a flat smooth floor and not on a rug or carpeting. Please wear proper ballet attire.
