Unsere Kurse
Preballett

Preballet (3-6 years)

In a playful way children make first experiences with dance and the basics of the classical ballet technique. Stories and images are used to support the motoricity of your child and give the opportunity to develop musicality and creativity. Along with this the children accustom to work in a (social) group and increase their attentiveness. Of course, joy in dancing is always the most important factor.

Kinderballett

ballet for children (7-1 1 years)

In these classes we focus on new experiences in movement as well as the knowledge of the french vocabulary of classical ballet and its execution. It is important for us that the children develop the correct alignment right from the beginning. This will work for their advantage in their future dance career. In short choreographies, the children learn to express themselves and to grow in their theatrical skills. These experiences on stage empower their self-confidence. Next to the specific development of motoricity, coordination, musicality and creativity we will encourage the joy in movement in general.

Ballett Jugendliche

Ballet for adults

In these classes the personal expression and individuality of the dancer comes more into focus. The dance technique will be developed further in order to enable every dancer to bring the inner feelings outwards. To make the movements look easy and delicate, a lot of work and exercise is asked from the students. This hard work will be acknowledged in soloist parts during performances.

Point work

Point work describes the work on point shoes and the special art to move just as delicate on point as on the whole foot. To avoid long-term damages, this work starts at the age of 11-12 years and only if the student has enough power in her feet and legs to support her body in the point shoes. It is important that the student makes an appointment with an orthopaedist to check if the foot can handle the extra-stress.

Students are asked to buy their own point shoes. To buy those we recommend the following address:

DanceMix

Dancemix

A mix of StreetDance, HipHop and Lyrical makes it possible to discover a great amount of movement possibilities. One time the focus of the class will be more on the rhythm and beat of the music, connecting it to fast foot work. The next time it could be more on the voice, drawing its movements into the room using the dancers‘ bodies. The students can find their own expression next to learning dance material and they can integrate and combine those two things into choreographies.

Contemporary

Contemporary

Contemporary is, as the name already suggests, a modern development that takes lots of different influences of modern dance but also of other dance techniques into account. The movements are executed in centre, sometimes at a barre, on the floor, across the floor, etc. There are no limits and the students are encouraged to also investigate and find their own movement solutions. The music used in these classes varies from classical, instrumental music as well as experimental music and indie-pop.

Jazz Ballet

Both, jazz as well as ballet, work with clear lines in their technique. Those clear lines will be combined in jazz ballet and will be put together in new ways. The tender elegance of ballet meets the accentuated elements of jazz. In this class, we work on precision, in movement as well as in rhythm and musicality. New movement elements will be practised in etudes.

Ballett Erwachsene
Stretching

Ballet for adults

Age is no restriction to start with dance and classical ballet. There are many advantages to start ballet dancing as an adult: you will work on your body consciousness, your alignment and the muscular system. All of this work can have a positive effect on your posture in your daily life. The classical piano music will support your movements so that you can enjoy moving your body. The coordination of delicate armmovements and strong legs will make it possible to experience gracefulness. Each student experiences the fascination ballet in his or her own body.

Stretching

 

After a short warm up with some strengthening exercises we focus on body and breathing. In different exercises we work with the upper body, arms, legs and the back. Soft music supports the relaxation of the different muscle groups so that we can develop a greater flexibility of the muscles. This flexibility will work in advantage for you in dance classes as well as every day life. Furthermore, the relaxation of the muscles makes it possible to loosen tensions. In that way this course will help to develop a healthier body.

Modern Dance

Modern Dance 

In the 1920s Modern Dance developed out of classical ballet and other influences. It works in opposites, for example tension and relaxation, push and pull, free or sustained movements. The use of gravity for the execution of the movement makes Modern Dance a technique for every body. Other than in classical ballet, we work on the natural movement possibilities of each dancer to optimize those. The combination of breath and dance allows a smooth flow of movement. Chanson or instrumental, jazz or modern music support the dance, make it a joyful experience and prove that everyone is a dancer.

Pilates

 

In the last century, Josef Pilates developped a new method to strengthen and at the same time mobilize the body. This method is not only ideal as a training for dancers but for everyone. Through specific exercises, we work on our deep muscular system. All movements are connected with the breathing and the focus on your own body will be directed slightly differently during each class. Next to strength and flexibility, we thus also develop a good consciousness of the own body.
