Lots of adult dancers find it difficult to understand how to truly improve their dance quality, style and expression. It is a skill that takes a lot of practice and refining - but contrary to popular belief, stage presence and charisma is something we can learn, not something we have to be born with.
Understanding how to effectively coordinate, emphasise and communicate through movements is key to transforming your practice. We will be sharing our top tips on how to get over your beginner look and move into your individual style and expression! This is what transforms ballet combinations from routines into dances and stories. It is what makes dance both beautiful and meaningful.
In the workshop you will:
- Learn to incorporate fluidity, ease and lightness into your dancing
- Understand the role of interpretation, coordination and emphasis on enhancing movement quality
- Learn to engage and connect with your audience through tension, excitement and emotion
- Refine your individual style, expression and stage presence
The workshop is 2 hours long and delivered online. The workshop will begin with a ballet barre where we will explain and explore adjustments that will alter your movements and dance quality.
Some of what we will discuss includes head and arm placement, fluidity in transitions, anticipation and musical interpretation. We will then move onto centre work, taking inspiration from two iconic ballet scenes, Juliet's variation from Romeo and Juliet and Swanhilda's entrance in Coppelia.
