Teacher Recommendation

This class moves beyond foundational technique.  Summer classes are more relaxed than the strict discipline of our regular year Intermediate classes, but still emphasize alignment, articulation, extension, elevation and musicality, while dancing more involved choreographic phrases with intermediate pirouettes,  waltzes, small jumps, grand allegro and coda typical traveling turns.
