It’s not just a type of dancing – it’s a culture!! Learn the history and language behind the culture and the basic movements such as rhythmic clapping, footwork, and Flamenco port de bras. You’ll also learn the first of four Sevillianas, a folk dance originating in Seville and danced every year at a festival time by children and elders alike. Female dancers should have a character skirt (or a full knee-length skirt) and character shoes or a low square-heeled shoe with straps.
This class is for those hoping to go en pointe, for those that are in their first and second year of pointe work, and for those looking to increase strength in their ankles and calve muscles. Half the class time will be spent working on demi-pointe doing strengthening exercises while the other half of the class will be beginner pointe work exercises. Those without pointe shoes will do these exercises on demi-pointe without the aid of the barre thus increasing strength on demi-pointe.
Pas de Deux
A class involving both male and female dancers. Female dancers with at least 3 years of strong pointe work will be paired with a partner to learn pas de deux combinations with aid of the barre and also in the centre. These combinations will lead up to learning a classical pas de deux.
Move & Groove Hip Hop
This class will be based around a fun no judgment environment where you will learn a choreographed body positivity fun routine. No experience is needed to join, just the ability to have a great time and love yourself!
