Approximate running time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Memphis TN 38104
Strength and flexibility are emphasized and the many new steps introduced increase in complexity. Students practice balancing on demi-pointe in preparation for learning the first pirouettes (turns). One-footed relevés and jumps also are given frequently to build the necessary leg and foot strength required for pointe work. When ready, Ballet 6 students begin learning the basics of pointe technique. Students must be evaluated by the School for level placement prior to completing registration for this class.
