This applied course introduces basic ballet technique with emphasis on posture, strength and body alignment.  Rudimentary terminology is introduced. Through systematic assessment of their performance, students have the opportunity to improve their ability to reproduce technique based on muscle memory, visual reproduction and verbal cuing. Students learn the basic components of a ballet class and the physical and mental disciplines required to complete the elements and begin to assess personal physical skills and limitations in classical technique. Steps are taught individually and reinforced.
