JUMPS & TURNS (intermediate/advanced dancers ages 12+)
FRIDAYS, 7:30 - 9:00PM: FRIDAY, JULY 12 - FRIDAY, AUGUST 16, 2013
Instructor: Ms. Jeré JamesPrerequisite: Participants must have 6+ years of training in ballet or modern. This high-energy clinic is designed to challenge the intermediate/advanced dancer with a focused study in jumps, leaps and turns. The modern-based warm up focuses on exercises that stretch and condition the body, use weight exchange, off center work, core work and balances, while using the body in a full range of motion on every plane. Across the floor work is a progression of stylized movement, with creative turns, jumps, and directional work that supports the work in the combination. The clinic will focus on alignment and understanding balance, weight exchange, and the body's center of gravity on all planes for consistent, clean turns and powerful jumps. Dancers will work on flexibility, strength, range and ease of movement and building /maintaining technique. Working from a strong center, dancers move through the class finding: (1.) freedom in the use of torso and limbs, (2.) a sense of dynamics and initiation of movement, and (3.) a sense of breath vs. control. Attendance is at all six sessions is required and makeup classes will not be offered.
