This class will be an intermediate level class that will be open to any level dancer. This class is great for dancers who are new to ballet but want to push their technique, for advanced dancers who want to add another technique class to their regiment, and any dancers in between. Open ballet will focus on building the dancer’s technique. Knowledge of basic terminology will be helpful for this class, but not required. Soft ballet shoes may be worn, pointe shoes will be at the dancer’s discretion.
