Ballet - When you stabilize, you can fly
Imagine your pelvis so stable, so organized, that it serves as the foundation and center of departure for all your work. When we tether so securely to the pelvis, we give our bodies permission to move boldly, expansively, and with risk and freedom. And doesn't that sound like fun?? This class gets all over that practice - and that's what it truly is - a practice. Use this recording to get after those ideas whenever and wherever you want. X Spenser
Ballet - Positions as pathways instead of poses, y'all!
We love the idea that a position (like fifth position or coupe, for instance) can be a pathway we move through, instead of something we fix, get stuck in, or 'pose'. This class emphasizes opportunities to move through your work, as well as leaves room for you to bring the values you want to grow in your own practice. Use this recording whenever and wherever you need it! X Spenser
Ballet - Let's remember to remember the hip crease
Remember the days when we used to talk about the hip crease non stop? Yes! We're bringing some much needed attention back to the ever important hip joint this class. When we stay articulate in the hip joint it does wonders for the organization of our backs and legs, so spending some intentional time on that area is more than worth it. Get creased and watch how it easy it is to coordinate, shift weight, and move qualitatively through class. Use this recording whenever and wherever you need it. X Spenser
Ballet - We love an intentional port de bras
In this class we focus on the movement of the port de bras. So often the movement of our arms is an after thought, decorative instead of intentional. But the arms are in fact part of the body, and reminding ourselves to include them (and coordinate them!) as we work can do wonders for our dancing. And if that's not enough, we're getting after our organization and musicality in this class, too! Use this recording whenever and wherever you need it. Happy dancing.
Ballet - The Whole Body Moves
Here's a friendly reminder that the entire body is participating in our dancing, always! Even in tendu, for example, the head & neck, the fingers, our focus - they're all contributing to the whole. When we include the entire body in our dancing, it helps us broaden beyond aesthetic values and into more inclusive territory. Come on movement! Come on DANCE! This class is for you - use the recording wherever and whenever you need it.
