Waltz, Pas de Valse
WHAT IS IT?
In this hour-long intensive which will all be danced in 3/4 time, we will dissect and perfect both the waltz step where the feet cross, and the pas de valse where the feet do not cross. The waltz step is very upright and elegant, and clearly shows a “down-up-up” or a plié piqué-piqué. First you will learn the waltz step at the barre, as we break down the foot patterns and positions that define the two different movements. Once you have learned the two different foot patterns, you will practice without using the barre. The pas de valse works through the first position without crossing the feet and travels diagonally forward and is practiced without using the barre. This class is all about dancing!
WHO IS IT FOR?
Please read the description and list of exercises to make sure you are technically strong enough to participate fully. 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. And please set your recording device with a horizontal view so Finis can see your entire body as you move from one place to another.
