This class features a thorough barre, including a significant stretch sequence, and an in-depth examination of a variety of topics of interest to the ballet student: port de bras, proper alignment, balance and strength, and technique for all movements from the most basic tendus and plies through complex turns and jumps. All students who have completed a Beginner Ballet series are welcome to attend.
The class will improve your understanding of the logic of Classical Ballet, thereby making it easier for you to remember sequences at the barre and in the center. In addition to a strong focus on technique, the class also presents sequences that are more "dancy," so that students may learn to link movements fluidly and to apply their technique in the context of longer combinations.
Alexei Borovik received his training in Russia at the Perm Ballet Academy. He was a Principal Dancer with Perm Ballet Theatre for eleven years. In 1987, he won the Gold Medal at The Sixth Concourse International Ballet Festival in Peru and was honored with a decoration as “Merited Artist of Russia.” He joined Pennsylvania Ballet in 1992 & was Principal Dancer until his retirement in 2006.
