Class will begin with a short warm-up and introduction/review of age-appropriate beginning ballet technique. This will be followed by a stretch, then we will begin our adventure into our story! Dancers will be introduced to a different classical fairytale or fable each week. After reading a quick story, we will learn a short dance combination that relates to the story. Dancers will also be encouraged to use their creativity to become a part of the choreographic process as we learn our combination and study how dancers use technique and emotion to tell a story without words.
