MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY, 11am-12:30pm PDT
Join former LINES Ballet dancer Laura O’Malley as she shares her perspective on classical ballet technique. She will draw upon her many years of experience as a professional dancer to give a class that is equally suitable for working dancers looking to find their centers before a day of rehearsal and for an accomplished former dancer who wants a challenge.
Laura O’Malley was born in Phoenix, Arizona, and attended the Kirov Academy of Ballet in Washington, D.C. on full scholarship. After graduating, she danced with Boston Ballet, and later as a soloist with The Stuttgart Ballet and The Dutch National Ballet. Falling in love with contemporary dance and self-expression, she later danced with Hubbard Street, Post Ballet, Alonzo King LINES Ballet, and SF Danceworks. Laura currently teaches and choreographs for LINES Ballet’s education programs, and has been a guest teacher with Festival Ballet Providence, Ballet Arizona, and Walnut Hill School for the Arts.
