Marissa Moeri instructs the following:
- Ballet & Modern Basics (8 yrs+)
- Intro to Technique 1 - B (6 yrs)
2x per week: Monday (Modern) & Wednesday (Ballet)
Ballet & Modern Basics is a 60-minute class that meets twice per week. Students will learn, explore and deepen their knowledge of ballet and modern technique. Each class focuses on vocabulary, alignment, strength, flexibility, balance, grace, focus, discipline, musicality and self-expression. Ballet & Modern Basics prepares students for Level 1.
*Please note that Ballet and Modern are the core of the curriculum at Dancers' Workshop.
Intro to Technique 1 (Introtech 1) is offered 3 times per week. You have the option to choose the class that works best with your schedule. Enroll your student in Intro to Technique 1 - A, B or C.
Introtech 1 is a class for 6 year olds. It is designed as a gradual transition from the creative movement curriculum into technique classes. Students continue to build on the basic concepts of dance (body/action, space, body awareness, rhythm, coordination, balance and social skills) while learning the fundamental elements of ballet and modern dance technique.
