The early years address control over the larger superficial muscle groups, but as training continues, and dancers mature, they tune-in to the inner musculature. This allows for an ever increasing refinement in execution.
The dancer’s entire being is integrated with breath; focus and intent of motion clearly defined.
Ultimately, the art is in the detail, the nuance, the emotion.
Class placement is determined by the Director’s evaluation of gross motor development, emotional maturity, attention span, muscle tone, and coordination. The exact age at which a dancer reaches each level will vary.
Classes are sequential; building lesson to lesson. Regular attendance is important and part of the commitment expected when students enroll.
