Contemporary Ballet Class

  • OnStage Dance Company 665 Salem Street Malden, MA, 02148 United States (map)

The objective of the class is to become proficient in the theoretical and technical aspects of ballet technique. As a class we will examine the science behind ballet, considering the anatomy of our own bodies and how we challenge physical laws while dancing. The class will examine the history of classical ballet and the evolution of contemporary ballet. 

As a teacher, I will incorporate a somatic and contemporary approach to ballet technique. Musical phrasing will be altered, not always relying on 8 count meter. You will learn classical and contemporary variation excerpts as well as create your own combinations. Current research in dance medicine will be incorporated into specific exercises and there will be an emphasis on stretching and strengthening at the start and finish of the class. My hope for you as a student is to become more somatically aware through the investigation of your own body in space.
