Ballet with Olivia Coombs

Tuesday, January 5, 10:00 am - 11:15 am

Olivia leads open virtual Boston Dance Theater Company Class. In this 75 minute class we will work through a traditional ballet barre and center. Our approach will be both technical and artistic, with an emphasis on breath and full bodied expression. Although we touch on lines and movements, we will explore the potential for circularity and verticality within the balletic form.
