Ballet is an elegant dance style originated in the Italian Renaissance. Ballet technique forms the base for many other dance styles. The classes at Talvandansen are largely based on the Vaganova Method, combined with current insights.
The class starts with a technical warming up at the barre. Followed by exercises through space to further develop your technique and feel of the style. Dance combinations and ballet repertoire will develop your musicality, dynamics and presentation.

In the lessons, dance technique is used as a tool to move through space, to present and to become more self-aware. The technique is not the end result, but a means to move as freely as possible. With a large dose of fun and nice music, the students can relax and have a nice workout.
