The School Of The Pennsylvania Ballet – Foundation Ballet for ages 6-7
July 15 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:15 pm on Monday and Wednesday, repeating until July 17, 2019
Foundation is the final year to get ready to enter The School of Pennsylvania Ballet’s Pre-Professional Program. Class continues to focus on the muscular strength, stability and flexibility that is needed in order to prepare the dancer for the more challenging steps ahead. In addition to strength building, we are now adding more steps into our vocabulary and linking multiple movements together. Combining the use of head, arms, and legs, forming more complex and lengthy exercises. In Foundation we condition and mold the dancers body into the correct classical positions and lines. Classroom etiquette, along with understanding of basic ballet terminology and precise execution of beginning classical technique is mastered this year.
*2 classes per week required
