Study Intermediate/Advanced Modern and Theater with JBDC's Debra Zalkind! The class consists of a set center warm up based on ballet, modern and jazz techniques. The warm-up focuses on body placement, organic muscular movement and breathing. The warm-up exercises include stretching, plies, tendues, extensions and jazz isolations. The floor exercises continue further body placement, strengthening abdominal and lower back muscles and leg stretches. Using a variety of music, an adagio is given which focuses on leg extensions, change of weight, transitions and musicality. The final combination challenges the dancer technically and stylistically to reach a performance level with a sense of style and presentation of theatrical dance.
