This will be a 6-week educational journey of basic ballet, terminology, body awareness, stretching, strengthening & a new yet familiar approach to ballet. This class will incorporate various genres of music such as classical, instrumentals, pop, hip-hop, gospel, dance hall, r&b, etc. There will be many contemporary-ballet elements; to add a little sauce to the class. Frankie encourages every student to come to class everyday with an open-mind, positive anticipation, a notebook & a writing utensil.
All students will need flamenco shoes (or for absolute beginners character shoes are fine for now). Men can wear comfortable workout pants and women please bring a long skirt wide enough to pick up. We will be focusing on rhythmic technique, palmas and basic footwork while developing posture and expression through marking steps and combinations. We will be exploring flamenco tradition and working on a choreography that we will be building over time.
Students will develop Intermediate footwork technique and turns. Get ready to sweat in class! We will also work on palmas necessary for a tablao setting as well as building a choreography.
Learn the ancient art of Japanese Taiko drumming with Sensei Bruce 'Mui' Ghent. The Introductory taiko class will cover basic fundamental skills and history which will prepare students to advance to the next level of classes.
Beginners ages 12-adult, with little or no music experience are welcome. Taiko drumming is a rigorous physical activity. Bring water and wear clothes to exercise in...sweat happens : ) Class is taught with traditional martial arts etiquette and discipline as outlined in the student handbook supplied.
