(For all students age 6-7-8. Including 9 year olds with no dance experience take this class. 9 years old with ballet classes can take the Advanced Class.) Instructor: Debbie Friedman Dress Code: Tights, Leotards and ballet slippers Course Description: The steps, movement, positions and general structure of classical ballet are essential to any dancer’s training. Ballet is so organically sound that most people, of all ages, could benefit from working these essentials. My classes take that foundation and adjust them to accommodate more modern music and cultural sensibilities. Ballet is discipline, fun, emotion, and freedom, all wrapped up in a very traditional but expressive package that reflects enormous history and very vibrant cultural relevance. Level 1 will focus on the basics and help your child to be comfortable moving in a very precise and somewhat formal way. The goal is to learn the most simple pieces of this art form so that the joy of the movement will shine through. Final class on March 7th family and friends are welcome to a mini-recital.
