This advanced class is designed for students who have completed at least three sessions of training in dance technique. The curriculum moves quickly and is meant for students who are ready for increasingly challenging combinations while adding musicality, artistry, and choreography to their technique. Students will take on more demanding steps and complex sequences of movement. This class focuses on advanced barre work, center exercises, across the floor combinations, and ballet variations. Students will explore their creativity and enhance their artistry by creating some of their own choreography in addition to the pieces choreographed by the instructor. Discipline, technique, professionalism, teamwork, and dedication will all be key elements of this class.
