BALLET 2-3 for ages 10+
With Fiona Scruggs
This class is for dancers with previous ballet training including a solid understanding of basic ballet vocabulary. We will build on that vocabulary and refine alignment through core strengthening warmups and dynamic barre work that directly relates to center ballet exercises. Level 2 ballet technique is learned with an emphasis on whole body movement, breathing, musicality, strengthening and stretching – all while cultivating a healthy body image and mental focus. Students may learn a ballet variation by the end of the semester. Pre-pointe work foot strengthening exercises are taught that are beneficial for all students, whether interested in progressing to pointe or choosing to remain in soft ballet slippers. Split-sole ballet slippers are required. Hair shall be in a bun or high ponytail (if applicable) so the alignment of the student’s neck is visible. Please see Pulse’s dress code for more specifics.
