This class emphasizes progressive development of proper technique and body alignment in both Ballet and Contemporary Modern disciplines. Increased focus on strengthening the core of the body is taught so that students maintain healthy physical progression through the levels.  More ballet vocabulary is introduced and greater emphasis on stretching and flexibility is part of classroom exercises. Some of Contemporary Modern concepts learned are; use of torso, on balance off balance, floor work and inversions, move with weight and powerfully through space, and use of breath. Students in this level have the opportunity to expand their interest in dance by registering for the Cornish Preparatory Dance Program’s Company 3 (Fall session only).
