PAST workshop

Investigating Ballet NYC

Janet Panetta

11:00am – 2:00pm
February 18, 2017

This is a workshop for dancers who are shy about the form. Perhaps they have had bad experiences in their pasts and given up on the value this form can have for them. By deconstructing movement into technical basics everyone learns, I will focus on working from the inside out, placing the bones where muscles are allowed to function efficiently. I will cover the basic front, side and back positions. An introduction to turning and jumping will be covered. This workshop is designed to build confidence for dancers to enter a beginner level class.
