Ballet Alignment & Placement at Steps on Broadway
Ballet Alignment & Placement focuses on strengthening posture, finding a solid center, and increasing agility for modern and classical ballet dancers. I helped develop this class based on a technique designed by internationally-recognized dance instructor Yehuda Maor to help dancers and athletes better understand their bodies within the ballet vocabulary. The classes uses a belt around the inner thigh to challenge core stability during barre and center exercises. Emphasis is on correcting spinal alignment and understanding weight placement during movement.
