Beginner Ballet Mini-Intensive #9 – Tour de Promenade
February 28 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
Sorry! This class is sold out.
We are proud to announce our ninth 2021 Mini-Intensive for Beginner Ballet students: Tour de Promenade
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.
Tour de Promenade
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?
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 camera so that Finis can see your entire body as you move from one place to another.
WHAT WILL WE WORK ON?
1. At the barre: Grand fouetté en tournant en dedans, à terre
2. Off the barre: Repeat Exercise 1 with the extended point off the floor
