Megan specializes in teaching intermediate-advanced level ballet technique for contemporary dancers. Her somatic approach encourages dancers to connect with their breath, pelvic floor and core support while performing complex sequences that emphasize musicality and spatial awareness. Starting with barre work, and continuing through center practice with adagio, pirouettes, petit and grand allegros, dancers will develop greater awareness of their dynamic alignment in order to maximize physical expression, and discover greater ease in movement. Big, bold, luscious dancing, from the inside-out.
This class is geared toward professional dancers, recent graduates, college dance majors, dance educators, and anyone craving a ballet class that encourages experimentation and risk-taking within a supportive community.
