What To Expect

We will begin with a general-level ballet barre and a small jump in the centre as the warm-up.

After that, we are going to study the 4th Movement of George Balanchine's Symphony in C, also called Palais the Crystal.

I chose this particular piece not only because I love it energy but it also offers us the opportunity to work on steps that are common in ballet classes so you will benefit greatly.

I used to dance the demi-soloist part in the 4th movement as well as the soloist part of the 3rd movement at the Staatsoper Berlin in 1996.

We will slow down the music a little and make modifications where needed. You can wear regular ballet shoes or pointe shoes.

What You Will Learn

Together with other enthusiastic amateur dancers, you are going to experience a rehearsal situation similar to that in a professional ballet company. You will get the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the choreography before the intensive through the pre-study video I create for you. 


You are going to practise:

• fast footwork

• port de bras

• artistry

• dancing in synchronicity

• Balanchine Style (I teach you what I was taught, however, I am not a Balanchine-trained dancer)

As this piece is quite short, we will practise the steps on both sides. Therefore, please familiarise yourself with both sides, A and B, in the pre-study video.
