DANC 111 - Ballet (Beg)

Unit(s): 1 to 2

This course focuses on the elements of ballet technique at the beginning level. The class is designed to develop body awareness and alignment, a sense of balance and strength in movement, and basic knowledge of ballet terms, positions, and simple step combinations. Students will learn the French terminology for basic steps and their translation. Students will begin with floor exercises to understand alignment and body placement. They will then work facing the barre to further refine this knowledge. Later in the course, the barre will be held with one hand for most of the exercises. By the end of the class, students will be executing steps in the center of the room.
