Students work on motivating movements from the turnout, maintaining a strong, centered and lengthened spine and coordinating arms and legs for more complex pirouettes and petite allegro. Focus on timing, musicality, and ensemble dancing are an important part of this class. Students are encouraged to self-correct so that more advanced combinations can be mastered.
