Ballet & Jazz Dance for ages 8-10 and 11-14

The Ballet portion of this camp will include daily barre, center, stretching, adagio and allegro work. Class will focus on both a physical and intellectual understanding of how and why each movement should be executed. Strength, flexibility, balance, poise and musicality will be developed along with an understanding of the principles of Ballet technique. We will teach an eclectic blend of jazz styles utilizing popular music of the past and present. The Jazz portion will build the technical and expressive abilities found in concert jazz and musical theater venues with an emphasis on line, phrasing, coordination and injury prevention. On the last day of camp, parents are invited for the last half hour for apresentation showing what the students have learned.
