This class is an evolving exploration of functional ballet technique as it relates to diverse, individual bodies.

Each class can be used to research the ways in your body navigates its relationship with ballet, while still remaining true to itself. Each class begins with exercises based on physical therapy best practices, designed to fine-tune the body’s alignment, integrity, and available mobility before progressing to a simple ballet class implementing these concepts. 

We believe classical ballet can springboard us into making adventurous, introspective movement choices when it is approached with a practical understanding of the consequences of the choices we make about the movements we embody.

Doors open at 9am. Class ends at 11. There is no pre-registration required for this class.

Please be sure to arrive with enough time to sign in and warm up before class begins.
