Beginner Ballet Barre Mini-Intensive #2
October 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
We are proud to announce our second Mini-Intensive for 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 tour de promenade. Starting at the barre, you will gradually progress — step by step — until you’re able to turn slowly in place in on one foot by a series of slight movements of the heel while maintaining a definite pose, such as an attitude or arabesque.
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.
