Ballet Technique for ages 10 through teens

Friends Select School

1651 Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Philadelphia, PA 19102

Designed for the beginning to intermediate level student, this course introduces and expands on the basic principles of ballet. Each class includes a thorough barre warm-up, center floor adagio and petite allegro, and across the floor grande allegro work. Dancers will gradually gain strength, flexibility and technical precision as a result of their work in this course. This class is a wonderful partner to our Modern Dance program and is recommended for modern dancers age 10 and up, as well as for dancers not enrolled in Modern Dance.  Proper attire required: ballet slippers, tights & leotard or dance pants and leotard. Classes run for 10 weeks. Early registration is recommended to secure your child's place. Taught by Victoria McGuigan.
