This is the second of three skill-based two-credit courses where students continue the applied study of ballet technique based on skill level, supplemented by instruction in ballet history, current choreographers and companies, terminology and classical dance principles. The course provides students with the opportunity to explore multiple aspects of this traditional and foundational dance art. Learning activities include physical practice, observation, discussion, reading and writing to cultivate kinesthetic, aesthetic, and intellectual understanding of ballet.
Classroom physical practice will focus on anatomically correct body alignment, placement, and turn-out, musicality, strength, stamina, and flexibility. Care of the body and conditioning for dance is also emphasized.
