We will investigate how a ballet class can be enjoyed as an active improvisation within a familiar framework. Can we depart from the image of ballet as something square, rigid, and archaic, but instead use it as a skeleton to find living movement that is informed by our current personal possibilities? Ballet can be more than just military exercises. It can also be poetry weaved from the quality of your personal choices – your brave artistry.
