Ballet school

It's never too late to dance! Whether beginning from scratch or returning from a break, this is a class for mature tweens/teens who are ready to dive in and focus on building a solid dance foundation. Learn the fundamentals of ballet and contemporary dance in an inclusive, body-positive environment that emphasizes individual movement quality and alignment vs. matching an aesthetic ideal. Using classical and non-commercial contemporary music, teens will be introduced to professional-level training that will translate into high school and college programs. For those with more experience we'll fine tune existing technique and add new challenges to support a range of levels, with the goal of building a cohesive teen group that is collaborative and creative vs. competitive.

 

Performances: The fall session will end with an in-studio demonstration for parents. Those continuing into winter will have an opportunity to perform in the Healdsburg Dance Collective youth show at The Raven theater, already booked for early March 2025.

DRESS

Black leotard of any style with pink convertible or black footless tights, or black fitted dance or yoga/workout wear of any style. No skirts, loose shorts or baggy clothes (so the alignment of the body can be seen clearly). Socks or ballet slippers such as these without drawstrings that stretch to allow healthy toe spread are recommended. I am happy to help check fitting of shoes before they are worn for class. Long hair should be pulled back securely for turning. No jewelry or accessories.
