Advanced Beginner/Intermediate Ballet Class
Alexei Borovik 


Wednesdays 6:15-7:45 pm, Studio B


$18 per class or $160 for 10-class card

SPECIAL INDUSTRY RATE: Professional Dancers & Students: $12 per class


This class features a thorough barre, including a significant stretch sequence, and an in-depth examination of a variety of topics of interest to the ballet student: port de bras, proper alignment, balance and strength, and technique for all movements from the most basic tendus and plies through complex turns and jumps. All students who have completed a Beginner Ballet series are welcome to attend.


The class will improve your understanding of the logic of Classical Ballet, thereby making it easier for you to remember sequences at the barre and in the center. In addition to a strong focus on technique, the class also presents sequences that are more "dancy," so that students may learn to link movements fluidly and to apply their technique in the context of longer combinations
