CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Stretch & Conditioning

Dancers will be guided through stretching and conditioning exercises that support a dancer's flexibility, strength, and overall fitness. Information about injury prevention and tools to maintain their physical readiness in support of their dance training will be taught throughout the course.

Modern

Classes focus on developing core dance principles, such as balance and coordination, while exploring diverse movement concepts. The curriculum includes spinal articulation, floorwork, movement dynamics, use of weight, and complex rhythms, building students who are adaptable to the contemporary landscape.

Sevillanas, Braceo, and Marcajes

Students will learn various coplas of the Spanish folk dance, Sevillanas, including its history and festive tradition of Feria de Sevilla. This class will give students the opportunity to focus on strengthening the execution and precision of their marcaje and braceo technique for Spanish Dance.

Footwork and Castanets for Spanish Dance

Spanish dance forms have been the backbone of the Ballet Hispánico School of Dance since its founding in the early 1970s. This class will give students the opportunity to focus on strengthening the execution and precision of their footwork & castanets technique for Spanish Dance.

Ballet and Pre-Pointe/Pointe

Students are introduced to a ballet curriculum that enables them to develop a holistic understanding of technical skills in a disciplined yet nurturing environment. Our ballet program emphasizes plasticity and virtuosity to create proficient and powerful dancers. Students will develop their pointe technique through strengthening and conditioning exercises specifically for pointe work. The class can be taken in both flat ballet shoes and pointe shoes, and will focus on developing the students' knowledge and execution of pre-pointe/pointe fundamentals.
