Technique classes – Ballet class description:
The ballet class focuses on different qualities and dynamics within the ballettraining lexicon. Developing exercises that focus on articulating movement, to give space between the bones, joints and against the floor. Creating freedom within the classical positions. Finding ways to individualize the technique for the dancer, considering his/her needs and unique way of working. And further using musicality and space, to develop and challenge them. Motivating the dancers to enjoy and appreciate the technique, as well as keeping a healthy mind and body.
Check out this team of dancers: It was such a great and fun time to work with the new BallettHagen. Thank you Marguerite for the invitation and warm hospitality, dearest Francesco, Waltraut and the team of these amazing dancers for having me. Lots of laughs, joy next to hard work, dedication and humbleness. These very different individuals are wonderful both in the studio, on stage and in general as human beings. Go see them perform when you can. Warmly recommended. They work together with good team work, synergy and it’s truly inspiring to experience it.And thank you also to Mary (Amber’s mom) for filming us working together during the training. And, we didn’t have a pianist this week, so we used the whole orchestra of #labayadere 🤗
