Ballet

We teach the Russian ballet method Vaganova. This technique and training system was founded by the Russian dancer and educator Agrippina Vaganova. (1879-1951) In some classes we also follow parts of the RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) system.

In ballet, the focus is on technique, agility, strength, balance and gracefulness. Students learn positions, pirouettes, jumps, tempo and rhythm. In the classes for the youngest children the focus will also be on playfulness.

Ballet provides a good posture and body control, which is a favorable basis for all dance.

Equipment : We encourage all ballet students to show up in class with the right equipment. Here we consider ballet shoes, tights and leotard as the right equipment. Skirts / Shorts are optional. For shows and performances, white ballet shoes and tights will be the color we use. You may need a black or white leotard as a base.

Pre-point and Point

Pre-point is a preparatory class for classical ballet with point. In this lesson, we will focus on stability, strength and mobility for the right starting point for point work. Everyone who wants to start with point, must go through the pre point class and have approval from the educator before moving on to the next level.

Equipment: Same as Classical Ballet. In the pre point classes, we use soft ballet shoes. We encourage you to sew silk ribbons on the soft shoes to learn the correct tying technique and give the student an experience of working towards the point classes.

Point is a classic ballet class with point shoes. Point is demanding and it is therefore important that you have been through both pre-point and in addition go on at least one classical ballet class a week.

Equipment : Same as Classical Ballet. Point shoes: we will teach you how to tie and use your point shoes.

Modern/Contemporary

 

 

This is a versatile, challenging and dynamic dance training. Modern dance started out as a reaction to the strict classical ballet. Contemporary dance work largely with release technique, where we seek to release unnecessary tension in the muscles so the body can work freely. It is up to the individual teacher which style and technique are used in the class.

Equipment: During these classes we dance barefoot or in socks. You may want to bring long pants and a long sleeved sweater for floor work.
