With a focus on coordination, strength, and flexibility, this class begins with barre work to find proper bodily alignment. Center work improves balance and allows us to incorporate alignment principles into dance phrases. Part of this ballet class will be devoted to stretching to gain flexibility, prevent injury, and invite relaxation.
