About the Event
ABOUT THE CLASS: A ballet class geared to Intermediate/Advanced level dancers, the class is designed off of principles from Vaganova technique. We will focus on musicality as well as technique. My mantra is to encourage every dancer that ballet is attainable by all, no matter the body type, there is no judgement in the studio. Together we will explore your endless possibilities and find new discoveries along the way that will carry You beyond today.
