with Barbara Selinger, DDC artistic director
Mon & Fri 10:00 – 11:30 AM

DDC’s modern technique classes are designed to encourage articulation and versatility, and prepare dancers for the infinite demands of contemporary choreography. Based on the Humphrey-Limón tradition, the classes emphasize both technical and performance skills through contrasting dynamics and stress the importance of using the body as an expressive instrument. Classes focus on alignment, movement efficiency, strength, control, flow, and the use of breath to achieve total body connectivity.

with Betty Mawhinney, DDC ballet mistress
Wednesday, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Ballet classes are for those with previous dance training who want to pursue further development of their performance skills by practicing classical ballet technique. The traditional sequence of a barre warm-up followed by center work in movement combinations of adagio, pirouette, petit and grand allegro are designed to enhance the dancer’s training in becoming a technically strong, versatile, musical, creative artist.
