We are excited to offer a new class this season -- Ballet Basics for Bollywood Dancers. The goal of this workshop series is to learn ballet/jazz technique to strengthen lyrical and contemporary performance in Boston Bollywood. This class will focus on Precision, Balance, Flexibility, Extensions, Body postures, turns, jumps and overall technique details. Because this class is only an hour long, we will focus on building skills while learning 16-24 counts of a small routine which will incorporate the material learned during the class. This class is designed to help sharpen skills for next season's Contemporary/Lyrical dances. It is advised to sign up for as many classes as possible as each class will build on top of material learned in the previous class.
Each class includes: - a ballet warm-up to strengthen technique (pointed toes, body postures, turnout, etc) - a stretching warm-up for flexibility - drills to improve jumps/leaps - a short routine to practice skills from that class
Each class will also teach 4-6 new skills to practice technique and expand your movement base: - 1-2 new types of turns - 1-2 new types of jumps or leaps - 1-2 new “traveling” steps across the floor
