This is a special 2-day course designed to help clean and refine your pirouettes! Learn some of the secrets of amazing turns, and how to resolve the most common pirouette issues I encounter. Course intended for intermediate to advanced dancers age 12 and up, with 3+ hours of ballet a week. We will begin with a basic ballet warmup (floor, barre, and some center) with targeted exercises to prepare us for the pirouette portion. Focus includes turns, preparations, landings, transitions, and drills to reinforce techniques. We will mainly focus on basic pirouette en de hors, but will touch on de dans, traveling turns, continuous turns, and fouette prep and turn. Required for class: -Open space for dancing. We Ideally, find a place where you can do 2-3 traveling turns at least. -Chair, counter, or barre to hold onto -Leotard and tights, hair in a secure bun (not a ponytail!) and ballet slippers -Laptop, cell phone, or tablet with camera capability (students without cameras are welcome to participate, but I'll be unable to provide correction without camera!) If using a laptop, I recommend a high-quality usb webcam, as they have much better resolution. -High-speed internet Please note: Course will be recorded.
