Intermediate / Advanced Ballet with Stephanie Albanese
All classes take place at 95 Empire Street, 3rd Floor Dance Studio.
In this class we will focus on learning and understanding the rudiments of ballet - line and placement, while also learning musical phrasing of the ballet combinations that are given in class. I always strive to give a class that is relaxed and open, yet always with a focus to learn. The class is open to all ages and I am always supportive and encouraging with teaching this beautiful art form. This class is centered towards an advanced/intermediate level. This means to get the full benefit of the class, two to three years of prior ballet experience will be needed.
