Ballet

Designed with skaters in mind, ballet curriculum follows the Cecchetti and Vagonova foundations of alignment, physical expression, and promotes maximum fluidity on the ice. Skaters learn correct alignment and body awareness to promote intellectual development, physical development, and injury  prevention. All classes start with a complete barre warm up, followed by across-the-floor and centre  work. Upper levels include adagio, petite allegro, and grande allegro combinations.

Horton & Limón Modern  

Horton and Limón techniques combine Ballet technique with Modern movement language through  extension, contraction, fall, & recovery. The class consists of a warm-up in centre through lateral  movement, contraction, and dynamic stretching. Through the warm-up series, students gain a heightened awareness of body, weight, balance, and core strength. Centre-work includes Limón combinations, Horton preludes & combinations, and choreographic repertoire.
