The training paradigm in contemporary and classical dance techniques is continued with three classes in Contemporary, two in Ballet and one in Yoga providing 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. Training in each of the techniques will deepen the knowledge of the body and its movement possibilities. Students will study the advanced steps of Ballet with an emphasis on demi-pointe work and steps of grand elevation. In Contemporary Dance classes, presentation of more demanding movement sequences assists students to develop greater technical proficiency and a more extensive movement range. Classes continue to highlight the importance of efficient alignment, cardiovascular endurance, expression and musicality.
This subject continues to integrate the conceptual language and practices of the subject Integrated Body Mind Practices and is taken alongside a Dance Elective.
