Dance Technique 3 expands on the fundamentals established in Dance Technique 2. Three classes in Contemporary, two in Ballet and one in Yoga provide the platform for further development of technically strong dancers capable of exploring the breadth of artistry within their dance technique. Two classes in both Contemporary and Ballet will be delivered in smaller groups to provide individualized application of training. The remaining classes will be delivered with leading dance industry professionals. Classes facilitate the mastery of exercises and consolidate the understanding of the principles of both techniques concentrating on the refinement of movement skills in more complex movement patterns. Classes continue to highlight the importance of efficient alignment, cardiovascular endurance, expression and musicality.
This subject aims to integrate the conceptual language and practices of the subject Integrated Body Mind Practices and is taken alongside Dance Tech Extension 2.
