Adult Ballet: Beginner (Level 1)

Instructor: Angelina Matteliano

Saturdays: Weekly Starting March 30th 2019

Time of Class: 10-11:30am

Class Description: This is a full classical ballet class where students will learn beginner level steps and vocabulary in a traditional ballet technique class format.

Class Specifics: This course will use the Russian Vagonova technique. Class will start at the barre and move center for turns and jumps as class progresses. Body conditioning floor exercises and stretching that isolate the muscles needed for classical ballet technique will also be incorporated in-between the barre and center exercises.

Prerequisites: None

Attire Guidelines:
Stretchy form fitting clothes are required. Solid colors are recommended (leggings or fitted shorts and a tank top or fitted t-shirt works just fine) so both student and teacher can clearly see what position your body is in for correcting purposes. Heavy or dangling jewelry must be removed for safety purposes. Please use a bun, twist, or tight hair clip for those with long hair, so it won’t be in your way, but as long as it is secure and off your face and neck, you should be good to go! Bring ballet slippers if you have them, but if not then socks will suffice! If you would like to wear dance shorts, leg warmers, or a ballet skirt, be my guest! Lastly the birds nest believes in a sustainable business practices, so do bring your own water bottles as we do not typically have disposable cups on site.
