Traditional Ballet: Level 3
Dancers in “Dance: The Cutting Edge – Traditional Ballet: Level 3” should have full knowledge of Levels 1 and 2. Each video is a continued building block on the previous ballet levels completed. Barre is now taken all the way through to stretch and includes more than 40 advanced movements such as Frappés, Pas de Chevals, and preparations for Fouettés. Differentiation is a key element in center combinations as dancers learn new leg placements, such as Attitude, and then are challenged by implementing Attitude Turns. Batus (beats) are introduced during Petit Allegro, and across the floor and Grande Allegro now consist of combinations. Focus, memory, and multi-tasking are exercised through the use of these combinations.
The instructor offers detailed breakdowns of each move, offers corrections for common mistakes, and has students demonstrate exercises and new material. The class is longer and more structured. Strength training, grace of movement, and advanced use of music and rhythms are stressed. Our “Traditional Ballet” series is full of exceptional learning and teaching tools stemming from the artistic vision of Elizabeth Acuña Nuevo, owner and director of Artistic Dance Center located in Doral, Florida. Elizabeth teaches Levels 1-4 alongside Nadine Barton. Nadine is currently in her fourth season with the Alabama Ballet, performing soloist and corps de ballet roles in works such as Don Quixote and Coppelia.
