Traditional Ballet Barre Exercises and Center Work will be taught and at the end of class, different genres of dance will be explored. Through this method, the students will discover how good technique lends to further exploration and expression. Previous dance experience is not necessary, but a love of movement and exploring new things that will help the student get the most out of this experience. Dancers will be learning a variation from the Nutcracker Ballet to be performed at the Club at the end of November.”
