Contemporary Ballet

This class explores ballet technique through a contemporary lens paired with an eclectic soundtrack (Olafur Arnalds, Philip Glass, The Lumineers, Bach, Glitchmob, etc.). Enjoy ballet in a whole new way! This class begins with a barre warm up that progresses similar to a regular ballet class, but with more flow and emphasis on music and continuous movement rather than perfect technique.

Then we move to the center, linking balances, turns, and jumps, leading up to learning a short phrase of original choreography. This class is suitable for dancers with a basic understanding of ballet technique through intermediate levels. If you are interested in performing in our next Dance 101 show, this is a great way to practice learning choreography and musicality!
