DAN 332 - Ballet Techniques 2
Class Hours: 2
This course is designed to continue the exploration of Ballet Dance at an advanced beginner level, offering students the ability to form a solid foundation in dance. Dance vocabulary will be used throughout the semester in regards to ballet terms, meanings, movement and staging with a heavy focus on French to English translation.
Students will work to gain improvement in areas such as balance, flexibility, stamina, alignment, musicality, and strength. The beginning of each class will include various exercises at the barre as well as center worked across the floor. These are designed to create correct alignment, re-pattern movement habits, stretch and strengthen the body as well as increase technical skills. All exercises both done in the center and across the floor will be incorporated into choreography for exams.
