NEW-CLASS
60:40 Pilates to Ballet
October 30th – November 20th
Tuesdays + Thursdays | 10:30 AM – 12 PM
$10ABOUT THE CLASS

This class is aimed at bridging supplementary training and ballet class. We begin with about 55 minutes of somatic-based pilates and fundamental conditioning exercises, then move to vertical for a 35 minute basic ballet class. Set, simple combinations help dancers attend to changes they are attempting to make in their posture, alignment, coordination, mechanics, etc. and also provides a bit of cardio challenge. By the end of class, we pull it all together and move through space to music, learn complex choreography, and indulge artistic impulses, all while simultaneously maintaining good mechanics!
