THURSDAY, JUNE 24 | 11AM-12PM
with Christina Johnson
Classical ballet is the mainstay and technical foundation of Alonzo King LINES Ballet Company, Training Program, BFA at Dominican University and LINES Dance Center. You will learn the very basics of ballet in a highly personalized and non-intimidating atmosphere. The basic body stance, body placement, musicality, and basic terminology will be emphasized in the course. In addition, you will learn arm movements (port de bras) and strengthening exercises, specific to ballet. No prior experience necessary.
Christina teaches a ballet class that weaves together the exactitude and form of classical ballet as well as the expansive and unbound quality of contemporary movement.
